I found this old card I had written when I was first out of my parent’s house. It was in my mom’s old recipe box and on the back she wrote-use any mix you want and make any flavor you want. Love you. I remember her experimenting with so many different flavors! We just moved this past weekend, and as I unpacked kitchen box’s I also came across A Taste of Home Cooking. A recipe book given to me by my mom-in-law in 1996. With great recipes from the Acton & Maple Hill United Methodist Churches in Indiana. This book has a lot of memories, food smudges, and a very sweet poem inside called-A Special Recipe which I will do a separate post for because it is special and needs its own place. And the final book or rather magazine I pulled out of the box certainly brings me comfort. It is called Taste of Home Comfort Food. On the front it reads 254 warm & cozy favorites and has a creamy, cheesy picture of macaroni and cheese! I have a lot of pages folded in and love to just sit and look at the recipes. One book that I believe is hiding, and not lost, I hope, is one on soups my husband bought for me when we were making long trips from Florida to Indiana to see his dad that was very sick with Parkinson’s. Finding these recipes has been fun and I feel happier setting them out in our kitchen in a basket for special menu’s and meals to make for and with my family!
