This book is a documentation of our mother's food heritage, growing up in southern Kansas and northern Oklahoma, and her powerful, culinary impact upon her children and grandchildren. With this Cookbook, we honor our mother, Evelyn, her mother, Alma, and her sister, Betty Jane. And, we honor all of mama's family members, who have gone before her. We joyfully remember and celebrate papa, Therese and Sarah. And, we continue to cherish every moment with each other.
