Notes on recipe book, May, 2005:
A couple of years ago at a family gathering someone asked Mom for her
"dill pickle recipe" and said they never had pickles as good as she made.
Another person said, "when Aunt Clara is gone we all will miss all of
her good cooking." That made me think about how easily family recipes
can be lost if they are not passed down. When Mom had eye surgery I
went to spend a week with her, during her recovery, and I took my sons
laptop. I used the time to copy her favorite recipes and printed them up
and made cook books for her to give to family members as Christmas gifts.
I find the 'nationality dishes' the most fun - it would be all too easy
to loose our heritage if no one kept making the old favorites like
Kolaches and potato dumplings. Mom always enjoyed baking and cooking and
with her bad eyesight now she does very little cooking. But her recipes
are well used by many family members. It is great that they can be
shared with everyone in the extended family as well.
We are planning on spending a few days before the reunion at the farm and
Mom wants me to make a big batch of Kolaches to take to the reunion.
(Mom even used to have parishioners pay her to bake Kolaches for the
Tabor Church bake sales. They also asked her to bake them for Christmas
etc. for their families.)
