Mom's Cookbooks - Sentimental Sunday

My mom, Jean Keesey, loved to clip out recipes from magazines and newspapers, as well as hand write recipes on scraps of paper. Then the scraps of paper and newspaper recipes were   stuffed them into her collection of cookbooks and recipes. She kept scissors next to her recliner so she was always ready to snip out that really fascinating recipe for "Sour Cream Jello Horseradish Salad." She wrote down recipes from TV cooking shows, radio shows, discussions with friends. She loved to collect recipes.

I have inherited many of her old cookbooks, and they are like a treasure hunt; you never know when a recipe clipped from a magazine, newspaper, or handwritten on whatever piece of paper was nearby, will fall out from between the pages.  I don't understand why she clipped some of these recipes. Many are for things we never ate, fancy sauces and prissy desserts.

While looking through one of her books today I found:
Going through Mom's cookbooks brings back memories of sitting at the dining room table with her discussing cooking, recipes, and looking through cookbooks. I miss you Mom!

Let's play a game.
