Another Pleasant Surprise

This weekend, I received a delightful treat from my mother in law! She sent me some of her old cookbooks, including a group of wonderful vintage cookbooks, with copyright dates ranging from c.1952 to c.1976. And yes, I've already selected several recipes to try out very soon. I'm especially excited about James Beard's, "Dacquoise with Mocha Butter Cream," "Lemon Meringue Tarts" from Good Housekeeping's Party Pie Book, and the "Versailles Chocolate Torte" from Betty Crocker's Cake and Frosting Mix Cookbook. As I've previously written, my mother in law is very generous and supportive, and I am extremely grateful.

Until we meet for coffee,
