About the Book
This book evolved out of a project undertaken by the author in 2020, at the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. She set out to merge and organize family recipes from three kitchens: her own, her motherís and her grandmotherís. In an era when recipe cards are replaced by on-line cooking instructions, tutorials, and blogs, here she was with old fashion recipe boxes, full of handwritten recipes, some dating back to before she was born. As work progressed, a book took form. When completed the author realized it had become, in part, a tribute to her maternal grandmother who immigrated as a young girl to the US from a seaside village in Portugal, at a time of another pandemic, the Spanish Flu of 1918-1920. She lived life fully, for 102 years, and left much behind.
