I currently live in the city, but my heart is truely in the country, the 'Thumb' of Michigan. However, our jobs working in a Juvenile Detention Center keep us in the city for the time being. I love to scrapbook, make cards and interact with my children. I have recently become reacquaninted with canning and that is how I would this web site, searching for a recipe for dill pickle relish. My garden is in the 'Thumb' at my great-great grandparents original homestead, now owned by my parents. The original stone house still stands that my husband and dad redid. Our family will go out there and stay for a weekend or so and my children have adapted to an outhouse! But somehow, as I am in the cabin,usually doing dishes or in my garden, I often think back to my great-great grandparents and how they lived this way and often reflect on their lives. I have the privilege of canning with some really old jars, some with masking tape from my grandmothers two generations back with their handwriting. I cannot seem to peel off the tape as it reminds me of them each time I look at their handwriting as they are both now gone. Some of my favorite recipes are the ones handwritten by my family members. I love to once again look at their handwritting and feel close to them, it doesn't matter what the recipe says!
I'm sure I have some favorite foods, but I cannot think of them right now. I really enjoy cooking to make others happy though. My husband loves Lasuana so when I make this for him, I make two now and freeze one for a later date. I love to bake at the holidays, I uses all of my grandmothers' recipes and again think of them while I make the holiday goodies that everyone loves to devour. I do enjoy eating out usually Olive Garden, Forbidden City or Bennigans.
