Good Morning!

I'm shimmer, I'm fairly new to live journal. I'm really into cooking. 

Right now I'm learning to convert my recipes to scratch. I found a bread recipe that was horrible, it took 4 weeks to straighten it out. But it's un believable now. I need to rewrite it on paper before I can share it here, with the original recipe and source of course. 

This week I switched to pies, I made a pot pie from store bought pieces. Next week I will make the crust and shell myself, then turn to a scratch filling. I thing it's easier to take it in sections or levels, that way you don't get over whelmed. 

One of the projects my daughters and I want to do is collect all of Miss Sissy's recipes and then mine and then put them in "books of shadow" for them. And cooking can be so seasonal, I wouldn't do pot pies in the summer. I use that term "book of shadow" cause I really think there's a holy  and powerful aspect to sharing family recipes, cooking for each other, caring for each other, ya know. And it hope I haven't offended anyone.

Hope to share and hear from you soon.

Hello and welcome!

I love your idea of making a family recipe book for your children. No matter how old they are or where they are in the world they can always have a meal like mom used to make. Someday, when they're out on their own, it'll really mean a lot to them. :-)

Do please share your translated to scratch recipes! (In or out of season).
