Recently I came across an early 1980's collection
of "The Mennonite Girl Presents" children's cookbooks
Isaac R. Horst, a local Mennonite Historian.
These books are so delightful and
my co-worker, when she was just 9 years old, was given
"The Little Mother's Cook Book"
by her Grandmother in 1986.
She remembers baking with her Grandmother,
using her own little rolling pin - what fun!
The illustrations and little words of advice
are so sweet throughout these books.
I think this little cookbook collection is absolutely precious
and written with such love.
I wish I owned every copy but thankfully I
can borrow them from the College Library where I work,
if I want to
leaf through, read, and maybe even follow a recipe
for dinner or a snack!
Maybe Becky's little rolling pin, lovingly made by HER Grandpa, will be
used by a little one - cookin' with Gram someday!
Till next time....
