In our recipe section, we have two types of recipes. Our main goal is to publish recipes that were handed down from one family member to another. Sharing these recipes, it helps to preserve the legacy of the person that passed them on. Preparing and eating the same foods as your ancestors, also helps family members to feel closer to their relatives that have passed away.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
by Lois Monroe
In this 1960’s Broadway hit, Holly Golightly, has a dream of going to Tiffany’s Jewelers and ordering anything she wants. Well, it was much this format of going to Grandma Fern’s for breakfast as a child in Marion, Indiana. She was so excited when our family visited from Ohio for a weekend, that in the evening she would go around to each of us and “get our order” for breakfast.

The Holidays are fast approaching. Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away and many of us will follow family traditions with a special cake or dish that the family has used for years.
My family will celebrate Thanksgiving at my Mothers home, Betty Redd. Everyone will bring a favorite dish or two. For years we celebrated Thanksgiving, then stayed home with our children on Christmas. Thanksgiving has always been a Tradition we love and carry on.
