This book is a collection of recipes from my great grandmother Mary Aikin, accompanied by my photographs taken of each recipe throughout the cooking process and of the finished product.
Through the process of creating this book three living generations of women in my family were brought together and we were reminded of the wonderful memories we had of my great grandparents, the Aikin's. It has provided us with a sense of honor and connection with our past and what was given to us from those who have gone before us. The integration of my great grandmothers recipe cards/dividers and old family photographs was an integral part of remembering our connection to them.
There are just under 40 recipes including bread, sides, main dishes, pies, cakes, and other desserts, for all to enjoy.
