Last Christmas, I received a lovely, thoughtful gift from the Coolidge family, with whom I grew up on Park Ave in Wakefield. (Daughter Linda and I have been best friends since 1965! And, coincidentally, the canisters peeking out from behind the book in the photo below were a gift from Linda and her husband Mike about 15 years ago.)
Here it is:
It has lined blank pages and plastic sleeves to protect the pages. Unfortunately, I have a bit of a problem with lined blank pages. The problem is my handwriting…
BUT, dawn finally broke over Marblehead, as they say. (Is that saying specific to the Boston Metro North Shore?) I just got a very cool cooking and recipe program call The Living Cookbook that enables me to easily input recipes and then print them out in a consistant format. Why not just print them and stick them in with the pages and inserts? Works for me!
So, a happy ending – Thank you Frank and Lillian Coolidge for a super gift! Now I can put all my “use often” recipes in this book instead of searching on the computer, rustling through pages of paper, and/or printing out yet ANOTHER copy when I need it.
By the way, Mr. Coolidge, I am hoping to get a cooking show going on WCAT – you WILL be invited as a guest!
