I’ve spent two hours this evening scouring through recipe cards and books that my mother randomly marked. The result is a only a small dent to the large book I’d like to create, but 22 is a good number.

This is something I started a few months ago, but haven’t continued since my mother’s death. Now I feel like it’s even more necessary. I began with the recipes I remember from childhood…dad’s salmon cakes, mom’s biscuits and gravy and buttermilk pancakes, but I’ll have to talk to dad some more to see where to go from here. It’s almost like starting over without one vital resource. Mom could name every recipe she had ever tried and now I have to go searching through boxes of cookbooks and loose papers cut from magazines. It’s going to be interesting to say the least!
