Welcome to my show and tell Friday! My show and tell for this week is my Mother in Law's recipe box. I never got the chance to know my Mother in Law. She passed away 6 months before my Husband and I met. But because of the box I feel I do know her. Every time I make something from these recipes it feels as if I know her through the recipes. Isn't the kitchen where the memories are made?
These recipes are ones my Husband grew up on. They are his comfort food, when I make them it takes him back. The recipe showing is one of his favorites, Chocolate Snack Cake, it is kind of like a big cookie. It was also a way for me to impress my Father in Law (who has since past also) by my grabbing a recipe from Agnes' file.
Handwriting is important, especially in this day and age when everything is done on the computer. Almost nothing is handwritten anymore. So I've made it a habit of mine to write down our favorite recipes for my Children to have when God calls me home. Your handwriting is the only part of you someone can hang onto.
