My “Auntie Bessie” (as I have called her all my life, and so I am not about to stop now) turned 80 recently, and John and I attended a birthday party held in her honor by my cousins. The did a wonderful job with a luncheon of sandwiches, turkey, roasted vegetables, salads, and of course all kinds of desserts. It was enjoyed by her family and her many friends old and new. She was heard to exclaim “I’m too young to be this old!” – and it’s true, she is.
Many of the recipes on this site have been shared with me (and you) by Auntie Bessie – and of course I claim that all of them are my favorite!
