At the age of 92, Alice Peel Hafen (my sweet mother-in-law), wrote this cookbook as requested by family and friends who had enjoyed the many tasty dishes she had prepared over the years. With the help of Marc Smith, a nephew she was able to put this collection together. It not only contains her treasured recipes, but also a wealth of photos and memories she wished to share. This blog has already shared some of these with you. Here I will include the Introduction to her book, her personal history and a few of the pictures contained in the first few pages of her book.
