My Mom (Deb) started a hand written recipe book of all us kids' faves & holiday traditions about a year before she passed in 2001. These recipes have became a way for us to still have Mom at all of our holiday meals for 14 years now. I've never shared until now any of her specialties. However, I find as each year passes & as her grandchildren get older & begin to learn to cook that time is so precious, as my Mom passed in less than 5 minutes UNEXPECTEDLY & very young. I post these to keep her memory alive & to honor a great Mom & wonderful cook.
