From the Introduction:

“Many of my favorite childhood memories revolve around baking. Both of my grandmothers were avid and talented bakers; and both made it seem effortless. My mother was also skilled at turning out a delicious baked dessert, having learned from my grandmother. I remember many days when I came home from school to open the door and have a delicious aroma from the kitchen as my first greeting, to be followed by a cheery “hello!” from the kitchen.

As I grew, I became interested in helping my mother prepare a favorite dessert. When I was small, I would need to stand on the seat of a chair, pulled alongside her at the kitchen counter, where I would help add ingredients, and stir a bowl of batter. As I grew older, the chair was no longer needed, and I took on a more active role. I, too, learned the happiness and satisfaction is preparing a dessert, serving it to family, and being rewarded by seeing their happy expressions and enjoyment.

While my grandmothers knew their “tried-and-true” recipes by heart, my mother started to write them down, and put a quantity next to an ingredient, instead of a “handful” or another general measurement. I am so thankful to her for her attentiveness in doing this!

Recently I rediscovered my mother’s recipe book, handwritten over many years, as well as my grandmother’s recipe box; both chock-full of my favorite recipes. It has been my pleasure to bake them, make additional notes and comments, photographing my results with many of the dishes and table linens from my mother and grandmothers; and now, to share them with you.

I wish you much enjoyment, in preparing, serving, and eating your creations yourself, and in sharing them with your friends and family.”
