Here is the cover for my Rand & Isom Family Cook. I have sold i think 64 cook books at 15$ apiece, there we're four separate orders some of them we're actually given out for free though. But i made a nice amount of money on it, and i was able to collect over a 100 recipes from about 40 different family members and there loved ones, there was many recipes donated by children of family members whom passed on, and each page has a little bit of info about the person whom wrote the recipe. Here is a sample from the page dedicated to my Great Grandma, with some of our families favorite recipes of hers. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In Memory of Retha (Rand Smith) Her parents were Bob and Audie (Isom) Rand. She had four children, 16 grandchildren, and currently has 35 great grandchildren. Retha passed away in 2002. Tropical Apple Salad 1 Cup each diced unpeeled red and yellow apple. 1 Large Banana, peeled and sliced 1 Cup Grapes ½ cup walnuts ½ cup flaked coconut ¼ cup mayonnaise 1 tablespoon sugar ½ teaspoon lemon juice ½ cup whipped crème Combine diced apple, banana, grapes, walnuts, and coconut. Blend together mayonnaise, sugar, lemon juice, and dash salt. Fold whipped crème into mayonnaise mixture. Gently fold into apple mixture. Cover; Chill. Garnish with Apple slices, if desired make 6 servings. Zucchini Bread 3 Eggs 1 Cup oil 2 cup sugar 2 cub grated zucchini 2 tsp vanilla 1 cup chopped nuts Sift together in a small mixing bowl. 3 Cups flour 1 tsp salt 1 tsp soda 3 tsp cinnamon ½ tsp Baking Powder Beat eggs until light, add next 5 ingredients, Mix dry ingredients. Mix together until well blended. Divide into 2 large pans (greased) 350° 1 hour. No-Bake Chocalate Peanut Butter Cookies ¼ cup butter 3 cup sugar 4 tbsp cocoa ½ cup milk ½ cup peanut butter 3 cup rolled oats Combine butter, sugar, cocoa and milk in sauce pan – stir constantly over high heat for 5 min. Or until butter is melted. Remove pan from heat – add peanut butter and oats. Mix well – drop teaspoons onto waxed paper – allow to cool. Uncooked Candy 1 stick butter 1 can eagle brand milk 2 lb powdered sugar 1 package coconut 1 cup walnuts Step 1 - Add all the above ingredients into a large bowl, mix well. Shape into 1 inch round balls, place on wax paper. Step 2 - Then place into a double boiler one package of 12 oz chocalate chips, and 1/3 bar of paraffin wax and melt, then dip the balls into the melted chocolate. And place onto wax paper to harden. All of Retha's daughters, and some of her grandkids, and great grandkids continue to make this candy every christmas! It is a favorite of all of our family!!

I am really happy that you dedicated a page to your grandma. She must be a great and a very lucky lady. Wish you a very successful business.

I think it´s wonderful! I tried to write a cookbook with my best friends some years ago but we were too lazy to finish it. I still use those recipes
