Last year I remember watching a Paula Dean show and a few other cooking shows, well because I had the time then. And on one of them they did a family cookbook combined with a scrapbook. Basically it was all the famly recipes and on the same pages of the recipes there were photos of the family members....with a little story about them. I think this is such a wonderful thing for people who actually like to carry on family traditions and recipes. ANd plan to one day do this so when I begin my family not only do they have a piece of history they can taste a piece of that history. So who taught you how to cook? And does it mean anything to you other than being able to cook?

Wow. Making a family cookbook/scrapbook sounds like a great idea and it also sounds like a great gift to give to a parent or grandparent. Everything that I know about cooking, I learned from my Grandmother. I spent a lot of time with her as a child and I can still remember helping her knead bread and watching her pour a jelly mixture though a cheesecloth. Everytime I think about it, I can smell the wonderful smells that came from her kitchen and I can remember the laughter and happiness that always seemed to be there. It was a special time for me because no one else shared those moments with her. Most of all I can remember the holidays when the entire family came to her house to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas together.
