Re: White Colander Crime
You're a woman after my own heart!! As I recall, my Mother
wasn't the best cook with all of her dishes, but nobody could
touch her when it came to her baking!! That's where her
talents shone, and I remember the times that she would let me
help her. I would feel so proud to be able to sprinkle
cinnamon, or add raisins to her bread dough, or to mix the
yeast to her recipe!! Even to help her cut and roll the
cookies she made for Christmas, that I still make to this
day, to keep her memory alive. I remember the bowls she used
for her bread dough, as well as some of her utensils, as well
as some of the other items she used in the kitchen. I'm
still trying to get some of them now, since my Father
recently passed away, and we're in the process of clearing
out their house. My other Sister got the house, and I asked
her for a few items, which she let me take, and I've been on
cloud 9 ever since!! I look at her copper jello-molds every
day in my kitchen and smile. I hope you have a very Happy
and Blessed Thanksgiving, and I'll be looking forward to
reading your latest book!! It's already on my TBR list.

I'm fascinated by the descriptions of the tools...I'm familiar with some of them from my grandmother's collection but you've introduced me to so many. Thanks!
