Recipe Box Roulette
Recipe boxes are little time capsules. They give us a glimpse of daily life, friendships, family traditions, personalities, and the hopes and dreams of their curators. They’re filled with stories. Some tell of indulgence others of struggles. There are recipes for celebrations and recipes to help console sorrows. I tip my hat to the creators of these culinary works of art and am honored to share their stories here each week as I pull a recipe from my recipe box collection. Join me on Instagram and play along.
