This past weekend I was gifted something extraordinarily special: cookbooks. Not just any cookbooks, but cookbooks from my great-great-grandmother-in-law. Is that a mouthful or what?? I can’t explain why it’s so special to me, but maybe it’s because I could never read the Chinese cookbooks from my side of the family. But these? They’re in English, and that I can do.
I’m going to start a new string of blog posts featuring these recipes. I think that these books are just what I needed to motivate me to get out of my cooking rut. I can’t wait to dig in.
Here’s a sneak peek at just a couple of the books that I was given.
This one here is from the 11th Pillsbury Bake-off. I think they’re into there 40s now. I seriously cannot express my excitement.

Oh my goodness! Now I am jealous. I like the way they talked about baking in those books. You are indeed a lucky dough. 🙂

If you’re nice I may let you borrow them 😉

WoW! You are one lucky girl! I can’t wait to see what you make from these!

Thanks, Jana! I’m pumped to dig into them as well. Unfortunately, between the time I posted and now, I’ve managed to misplace the books… moving into our house has been really chaotic!
