The recipes in this section are the collection of the first 3 of Leona’s cookbooks. They are compilations of friends and family recipes that were donated to her for the purpose of the cookbooks. The photos depicted are stock photos and do not necessarily look exactly like the end product. I have not personally made many of these recipes so I do not have photos.
My intention in posting these recipes is not for self gain but because of numerous repeated requests for reprints of my grandmother’s books. I can’t afford to print books, and I thought this would be an affordable alternative.
My grandmother gave me her unsold cookbooks to manage and sell, and the boxes full of originally submitted recipes. I was also named in her will as an equal heir. I do believe I have the legal right to publish these recipes without further permissions, according to the original publisher, however I choose to respect the wishes of those who may not want the general public to have internet access to the recipes.
If you are a friend, family member or a family member of a friend and you do NOT want a recipe posted on this website, please email me with the name of the recipe and person who donated it. You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
