This cookbook was originally written as a Christmas gift for my daughter, Lindsey. I worked morning, noon, and night to gather a collection of recipes from my own kitchen as well as recipes from family and friends. These recipes were Lindseys favorites, those she would request time after time. The more people I talked to about their recipes, the more people would come to me because they heard I was looking for Lindseys favorites. What started out to be just a little booklet was turning into a full-fledged cooking encyclopedia!

I gave Lindsey the small, unedited version for Christmas that year, with the understanding that I needed it back so that I could put together the other recipes I had collected. I continued working on my book, and what started out as a forty-page cookbook was now over one hundred pages.

This book contains a conglomeration of recipes from friends, family, and even Lindsey, as well as from me and my fianc, Curt. We have all contributed our best-loved favorite recipes. No matter who contributed the recipes, they are all contributed with love. After all, that was the original intent of my gift to my daughter. Finally I give this gift to Lindsey with all my love.

About the author (2013)

Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, Janet Gaebel fell in love with cooking when she was forced to learn how, so she could feed her new husband. She taught herself how to make everything from fried chicken to homemade bread, made the old way. She never looked back from that point.
