It is hard to believe it was seven years ago that I started this blog. It does not seem that long and so much has happened! The first blog of January 31st was also in celebration of my grandmother’s birthday. The subject of the blog was about her Fanny Farmer cookbook that she owned while in college. Read my very first blog here. Just a few days ago, my first grandchild was born, and her middle name is Rose, my grandmother’s maiden name.
I have accumulated a lot more cookbooks and recipes since that first blog, but unfortunately the cellar is still not as I want it to be. It needs an update, especially after I got some beautiful shelves built by my sister-in-law’s husband, Larry. The cellar would not be the same without Larry’s help. He also provided the pick-up truck to haul my beloved card catalog from the library! Can you believe the library was throwing this treasure away?
Yes, those are all recipes. Every drawer filled. I have been collecting recipes for decades with nowhere to put them but boxes until the card catalog came along.
I have three more shelves like this one, but now I need more. Larry, are you ready again?!
Now I can’t wait for my 8th anniversary so I can show you what will be new and improved! I will be working with my friend Mary, who is an incredible decorator. Watch for updates!
In the meantime, thank you to my loyal followers and new readers – I love you all!
Remember, one can never have enough cookbooks…
