Tonight I made dinner from this:
It’s a “fill-in-the-pages” recipe collection from my family, and full of love and tasty things.
I’ve made 2 things from it so far: MaMa’s chicken and noodles (Success! Can’t wait to make again!) and meatloaf from my mom (I’ve made it several times before but now I don’t have to email every time to ask how!) and I can’t wait to try them all!
All of these meals are special to Hubs and I for one reason for another and so homey and comforting. There’s nothing as satisfying as cooking and sharing a meal or a dish that our families have enjoyed for many, many years before. It reminds us of those we love and the places we grew up. And it makes this city and this apartment and out little family feel a little more…established.
What about you? What recipes are special to you? And why? Do you have a treasured recipe keepsake book? And when it comes time to add recipes in to fill in the pages, what sort of things make the cut?
