We have many memories of family food, whether it was great feasts at family get togethers, the meals we had in our homes, potlucks at family reunions, prize winning entries at local fairs, watching someone bake/cook or someone teaching us how to bake/cook.
So often it is our female ancestors that we have difficulty finding out about their lives. Sharing recipes they and family members made is a wonderful way to honour them, whether in a family cookbook or one by one.
Recipes are made even more meaningful when you add a story of what you remember about it, when/why the recipe was served and a picture of the ancestor! Here are some examples.
