Family Recipies

I love to cook- my mom is a great cook, and so was my dad and they say they got it from thier parents. Lately I have been thinking a lot about family legacy... I know kind of deep-well it doesnt have to be. I think about it a lot because I want my kids to be tied to their heritage as Sanborns (and Cates) not just as Ethiopians. Now that Andrew and Annabelle love to help me cook, I wanted to find some family recipies. Tonight seemed like a great chance as I had 3 generations of women at my disposal at dinner. I would get the famous recipie for Aunt Heddy's jam. She makes all kinds, but most famously, stawberry and jalepeno. I was so excited to get these coveted recipies and low and behold- they are on the box of pectin... So much for legacy!

Boy am I glad I read this today...I am laughing out loud about the recipes being on the box of pectin. That is incredibly hilarious (or perhaps I needed to laugh for a dumb reason:). Enjoying your blog girl!
