Great Gift













As I was putting all of my cook books on the shelf of my new banquette, I smiled as I picked up this one and realized it was definitely deserving of 15 minutes of blog-fame. This was a gift from my grandmother's mother (Mrs. Pigford), and I am so grateful to still have it. I actually still use it. Every time I see this cook book, it brings back fond memories of Mrs. Pigford. What I love most about this book is that she wrote a personal note to me on the inside, along with the date. I can't even find words to explain how meaningful this cook book is to me. So, the next time you get a child a present, skip the toy section & pick up a good cook book - and don't forget to write a little note inside because that's the true gift.
