I'm really excited. My dad called this morning and he's going to give me my grandmother's recipes/cookbooks and even some of my great great grandmother's recipes! My plan is to put together a family cookbook for our family and I sent a plea out to our family yahoogroups asking for family recipes. His was the first response and I'm thrilled. My grandmother Slaton was an *excellant* cook so I cant wait to get my hands on her recipes.
The interesting thing about my great great grandmother's recipes is that apparently they are in old english which means to use the recipes I'll need to convert a lot of the recipes and possibly translate or find substitutions for some of the ingredients.
