I am in the process of Compiling/Creating/Adapting family recipes in order to preserve them for future generations of my family. I have tried to convince my mom for a few years now but I finally decided to take matters into my own hands in order to accomplish this task. You see my mom wasn't against the idea but she isn't one for stopping along the way to compose a recipe. She is one who improvises her dishes on the spot. So you could just imagine how it was when I would stop her during cooking in order to figure out the measurements used for a particular dish. HAHAHA, she could have strangled me for that!!!

My next conquest is to compile our family recipe for pelau and my grandmother's calalloo.
