The cover picture was taken just a couple months before she passed away. She always loved to work in the strawberry field. It was so typical of her.
You can see the hand written recipe and then the typed one next to it.
Here she is with some of her great grand children at a craw fish boil. She loved to do things with the children. But she did not eat much seafood.
Here Dianne is giving Mama a sip of her coffee.
I think Dianne must be saying "Save me some." Or maybe blowing on it to cool it off.
Maybe not ~ I just hope neither got coffee on them.
We have this book, thanks to Dianne, to look at for the rest of our lives. I usually knew what Mama put in whatever she was cooking. A little of this, a tad of that, a dash of the other. I don't follow recipes either unless it is something special. But I never learned how to make biscuits like Mama.
To us this book will always be special. The thanks goes to my little sister who put a lot of time into it.
We can go down memory lane with some of the pictures and recipes. Mama was not a seafood eater, but she enjoyed making gumbo for the kids. I'm sure the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will always remember Me-Maw who did things with them.
I will put some of her recipes under the tab recipes at the top of my blog. It will be a couple days before I have time.
