Barb is a school teacher by trade but had a wonderful idea for a cookbook. It is a 'You then Me' concept where you can take an old family recipe and make it your own. I actually tried one of the recipes with my family and we really felt liberated knowing we were suppose to change up the directions to what our taste was and it is now our family recipe. I am actually excited to try more! Anyway, Autumn did the illustrations which really capture the feel that Barb was after. She knew exactly the style that she wanted for this book and did a lot of research and we all made a great team ... I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
