Making New "Memories in the Kitchen"

Starting next Sunday, recipe postings from "Memories in the Kitchen: Bites and Nibbles from 'Bryony,'" will have a new look.

That's because Rebekah and I are making "new memories."

One of my goal when creating the cookbook was to actually prepare the food. I love to cook, and so do most of my children (half of them cook for a living). So during the gathering (of recipes) and editing process, which began in 2009, we also made remarks like, "I'll bet this would taste goo," and "I really want to make this."

But foreclosure, homelessness, and rebuilding, all while working many hours and tackling other projects, put that project on hold.

Until now.

Rebekah and I worked out a schedule for cooking, and we are working our way through the recipes. Each week, we will post a new recipe and photo of the finished project on the Sue's Diner page on the BryonySeries website.

Don't know what Sue's Diner is? Ah, it the "dingy, squat-looking building" on Main Street in the fictitious fishing village of Munsonville, a diner that serves "surprisingly good" food.

So Rebekah and I are preparing a variety of vintage recipes, ranging from the 18th century through the 1970s. And yes, those recipes will eventually include tongue and boiled calves head (although we will probably not cook opossum). 

We hope you enjoy the results and, perhaps, try some and make your own "memories in the kitchen."
