I had to pull one out in order to get another one out (perhaps it's time to clean out this cabinet).
As I held this cookbook in my hands while reaching in to get the next one, something caught my eye.
Something simple ~ Something Handwritten
You see, this cookbook used to belong to my Grandma. My Grandma who passed away when I was in Jr. High. It made me smile to see this ~ an unexpected gift.
My grandma wrote her name and the year in the cookbook ~ 1979. And as I paged through, looking for more of my grandma, I found a few of her favorites:
And I came to realize, that unlike my fruit salad preferences (ummm, a big bowl of fresh fruit ☺) all of her favorites seemed to have similar ingredients ~ like: Jello, mayonnaise, pineapple of some sort and canned fruit.
And as you'll see, the recipes she had to add to her cookbook ~ Well, they just make me smile :)
