These are recipes I have collected over the years, I wanted to share them with family and friends. I have collected them from magazines, newspaper clippings and friends,clubs and online. As I was growing up I learned a little about cooking through my Wonderful Mother Rueanna Louise Kayhoe-Wilkinson, she was 42 when she passed away and this happened on my 17th birthday, and through my wonderful grandmother's Pauline Bittinger-Kayhoe and Helen Virgina Shultz-Wilkinson they are gone now but will never be forgotten. As I grew older I got to know more and more about the love of cooking, I knew it was going to be something I would enjoy doing even from an early age when I was in the 4H club.I learned a little more about cooking when as I got older I did a little expermenting with baking also.I had experimented with cooking from the east to west coasts and then on to Hawaii. I WANT TO DEDICATE THIS COOKBOOK TO MY WOUNDERFUL MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER's, I always think about you and love and miss you dearly, AND MY WONDERFUL FATHER HAROLD WILKINSON AND SISTERS BECKY AND TINA AND MY BROTHER TONY.
