ALLISON SPEER's Favorites from Mom
Contributor Two Contributor Two
Many of our memories are preserved in the handwritten pages of cherished family recipes. My mother passed her mother’s old sugar-stained pages to me. I will use them and pass them to my nephews. We honor the hands that prepared these wonderful dishes and long remember the precious mealtime traditions. Here are favorites from my mother, Sue Ann Burger, and from my mother-in-aw, Faye Speer.
