Let me introduce you to my mom and dad, Elmer and Gert.  This is a photo from their wedding day...



Mom said when they met it was love at first sight,  3 months later they were married.  That was in August of 1941.

I was born the youngest child of 13. My next eldest sibling was a sister who was four years older. I spent a lot of time having mom all to myself while the others were in school and dad spent the morning sleeping in after working the late shift. Mom and I would spend quite mornings together doing housework and errands in town. Even when I started school it was only half day. so I still got another year of time alone with mom, forever tying me to her apron strings.

When I mentioned housework above that often included cooking, baking, canning and freezing food. Some of the recipes you will find in my recipe box are from her. She was a good cook and baker. She could master the task of just about anything she set her mind to. I hope you enjoy the recipes and most of all the end results of your efforts.
