This collection of family recipes is dedicated to my nephew Jim Beene. The book contains some recipes from the "Great Depression" and has anecdotes from my family.
The original handwritten copy of this book was dedicated to James Elery “Jimbo” Beene at Christmas 1994. A limited edition printing was published by Teresa Webber of Webber Digital Imaging and Desktop Publishing of Sherman Texas in 1997. Jim is my nephew, Teresa is my cousin.
Jim asked for this book of family recipes because he is very interested in family traditions, family memories and he loves good food but really had never cooked even the simplest things. He asked us to break it down very simple so even an inexperienced or first time cook can follow the process successfully.
