Every family has favourite recipes that have passed down through the generations. I have spent a good part of my life wishing someone in our family would take the time to compile some of their favourites. As children we were encouraged to express ourselves through cooking. Many of these recipes have been tried, tested and loved by all. They have been expressed in a level that even the youngest reader can attempt their first creations without fear of failure. Take this book and make it your recipe box, mark the recipes you love, add your own to the extra pages provided and encourage future generations to pass them on. A small wish but a great demand. Our family is a circle of love and strength. With every birth and every union, the circle grows. Every joy shared adds more love. Every crisis faced together makes the circle stronger. Memories have been cherished as well as our recipes.
