I recently received a spiral bound cookbook filled with recipes from my mom’s side of the family. One of her cousins spent quite a bit of time collecting the recipes, adding old family photos, and even including the nutritional content of each dish. I am so happy to have this in my possession now, what a great way to relive memories I was served as a child and start to make new memories for my boys.
I wasn’t surprised to see the recipe for my mom’s Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars, I grew up eating these and they are a tried and true favorite. I was reminded of them earlier this spring and during a visit in May, my mom brought down a batch from Colorado for my family to share.
Oh, and on the same page as the recipe, is a photo of my maternal grandparents on their wedding day…August 31, 1940, so it is fitting that I post this to my blog today. The Hubby and I share the date with them, but our wedding was just 17 years ago today 🙂
