The Smells, the Taste, the feel, the joy of
the Memories of Childhood
and Loved Ones long gone,
Recreated in a World of Sensations.
This is my Joy, my Inspiration,
Bringing you home to embrace my Spirit.
To My Family and Friends:
Starting with my husband, Wayne, who has been my partner in life and a wonderful father and husband whom I love very much. To our sons, Mitch and Jason and their families who I cherish. Mitch and Marquita bring us such joy and now we have our precious granddaughter, Viviana. Viviana has been a blessing in our lives and we love her so much. Our granddaughters, Sophie and Bella who have truly captured our hearts. We are blessed to have such a wonderful family. I love each and every one of you and hope you enjoy this cookbook. An added tribute to my Mom, who has always been there for me and I continue to cherish.
This is also dedicated to my extended family & friends who I have shared recipes and ideas over the years. Salute to all of you!
Enclosed is a collection of recipes that I have accumulated over the years and have tested, in some cases, tweaked or invented. Some are homemade and some are semi-homemade. I hope you enjoy them! This has truly been a labor of love, I have found my true passion. Love, Mary, Mom, & Gram
