I will add recipes as she asks for them.. I know she will keep me busy..LOL :O)

  2. That is an awesome gift! We have been scrambling as my grandmother has gotten older, because none of us have her recipes & she cooks by adding a bit of this & a bit of that. We're slowly trying to have people go over & figure out what she's putting in those great recipes. :-)
