When I came to my mom with the news that I was getting married, knowing that I like to cook and will be doing most of the cooking for my husband and kids, she got the idea to write down the recipes that she would often cook at home and put them into a book. She surprised me with a copy of this book after my honeymoon, and it's been a life saver. I have made a few of the recipes already, it's been so amazing being able to look through the book, see all the pictures of the food, choose what I want to make, and just go for it without having to call my mom for advice. I absolutely love being able to make my childhood foods any time I want. Thank you so much mom for such an amazing gift!!
