Papa's Recipes of Yesteryear

This book is exactly what it says, Recipes of Yesteryear (all are twenty-five years or older). All the recipes came from my family, friends, and companies I worked with.

Before I make any other comments, let me answer a question that I usually get asked. "Have you made all the recipes in the book?" And the answer is "Yes." All but one.

The book was inspired by my family and friends. Many would tell me to do a cookbook because I loved to cook. So I gave in, and here is a book of at least 150 recipes going from breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There are also so many other recipes for dressings, some desserts, soups, salads, and many other areas of possible interest. All the primary recipes are made to serve from four to six people.

Now, my recipes are designed as a guide for you, as being your own cook you can make changes if you want. This is really what cooking is all about. My belief that I have had through the years is when meals are cooked at home, they are made with love and are truly blessed from above.
