I mentioned in the last post that I put together a recipe book for the family for Christmas. It was one of my most favorite projects. I always looking for new ways to share family history stories in a way that people will actually read them. Creating scrapbooks was one way, but the recipe book was an idea that just came to me in the middle of the night. So much of our family revolves around food and future generations should know these food-based stories. Like the one time my mom decided to forgo the traditional Easter dinner of ham and cheesy potatoes to do an authentic Jesus dinner with fish, figs, and dates. It did not go over well. Or the time my dad "invented" asparagus tacos. Or the procsuitto pasta that my sister made that was so good and eaten so fast that my dad exclaimed, "What did you put in this? Crack?!" You can read more about the book in the introduction pages (including where I got the title) and see some example recipes below. I encourage you all to try compiling your own!
