Which have survived many generations
Whet many a mouth.
Remember the scents
Emanating from a well-stocked kitchen.
The simplest of meals enticed.
My Mother’s Recipe Box,
With all its well-worn, yellowing notecards,
I have gladly in my possession.
Cookbooks I learned from have been preserved.
I liked Betty Crocker and Farm Journal
Which nestle along with others on my shelf.
Some of my specialties were
Bread, jam, gingerbread, and chocolate cake.
My Mother instilled love for Dessert.
When I cook a meal,
It is often based on what’s for Dessert.
I make what I want to eat.
The various Recipes I have used
Follows my diet.
