My love of food and baking and cooking was inherited from my mother. She used things that she had leftover whenever possible to make a meal, for example a stew, or a dessert,and in-season fruit. We always had a wonderful aroma in the kitchen, and she had a flair for decorating the house,for example: when the doctor came to make a house-call, he admired the bouquet of wild flowers in an old chamber pot! I love old photos of family, and I never knew my maternal grandparents as they died before my mom got married. I treasure the photos and the old recipes my mom saved. Her handwriting was poor but I can read this one recipe.
