The item up for bids this week is a CD copy of our Family Cookbook. Back in 1996, my mother finally agreed to write down all her recipes so that I could type them up for a family cookbook. All the women (and some of the men) in our family also contributed to this recipe collection. The original book was only my mother’s recipes, printed on 8 1/2 X 11 inch paper, and bound with a comb binding. It had her picture on the front, and there were only 14 copies made–one for each of my siblings and each of the adult grandchildren. After that first print was done, all of the women (and some of the men) in our family also contributed to this recipe collection. We printed about 100 copies on in a book that was 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 inches. It had 250 pages at that size, and all 100 copies were distributed.
Today I am offering a CD version of the 250 page cookbook, Recipes From Our Mother’s Kitchen. It doesn’t have my mother’s picture on the front of it, but it will be signed by me, FabGrandma.
