7/22/2009This is a close-up of my daughter’s cookbook collection. Her collection lines the walls of our kitchen. She inherited the cookbooks from her paternal grandmother. To the right, in this picture, is the Congressional Club Cookbook. Martha Cooper, a dear friend, fellow mother, ornithologist, and the wife of Congressmen Jim Cooper, gave me the cookbook for my birthday this year. I gave it to Caroline. If you give me a cookbook you must expect, particularly if I love it, it will end up, quickly, in my daughter’s collection.
