Learning to cook from Grandma

Learning to cook from Grandma

Originally uploaded by esKIM0

Today while I was taking a break to fix some lunch and do dishes, I noticed my grandmother’s box of recipe cards and had an idea. I’m going to learn to cook from my Grandmother.

She passed away a couple of years ago, and when we sorted through all her stuff I didn’t have as much of an interest in things with monetary value, but instead I wanted things like her old rotary phone, and these recipe cards. Things that really reminded me of her.

So I decided today that I’m going to take on a little project: I’m going to cook one of her recipes each month. I haven’t even looked through her cards, but I figure there are probably a lot of things that I’m not really interested in, like fruit salads or casseroles. But no matter, I need an excuse to cook anyway, and I love the idea of having my grandma teach me. So each month I intend to post to my blog about my attempts, along with photos. Stay tuned!
