I can't hold back my tears when she told me that they are leaving for Perth, Australia. She is like a mother to me. Before she left, she passed me some recipe books. I don't have much time to read all the cook books but recently whilst having my book shelves cleaned, I stumble upon this cookbook.
My my my....this cookbook was first printed in Chicago, 1943...and reprinted again in 1971.
This is so heartwarming....check this out!
