My mother's life through her recipes. 1920's to 2000's. South Dakota to California to Reno, Nevada. The recipes are those that women copied from each other as one of them was at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee and the other was preparing dinner, or a special dessert. Some were handed down through the family, others were old or new friends that exchanged them while visiting. None were tested in "State of the Art Kitchens" they were tested in farm kitchens, small apartment kitchens, home kitchens across the country.
