The Home Cook's Legacy
Two important women in my life opted to put together cookbooks instead. My Nana Vidal authored one called Everything But... Filet Mignon. My Grandma Shook wrote Recipes: Remember These?. I cherish both; they contain recipes that were (and are) family favorites. Even if you didn't personally know either woman, reading her cookbook would tell you a lot about her. When I look for inspiration, I need go no further.
One day, I'll write my own cookbook for the up and coming cooks in my own little family. It might never be published, and that's okay. I put a lot of myself into my cooking. All I'm looking to do is share the love. In the meantime, I'll do that by cooking yummy food for the people I care about.
