It seems Mom's always been there...helping with endless stacks of homework, giving the best advice and baking the juiciest pies we've ever tasted! And it's those home-cooked meals that inspired us to gather some of the tastiest recipes moms everywhere are making in Mom's Favorite Recipes! And following Mom's advice of "use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without," we've shared easy ways to turn flea-market finds into unique gifts like turning an ordinary kitchen colander into a whimsical wind chime. And our canning chapter helps preserve your garden's bounty. So here's to Mom...her patience is never-ending and her heart is made of gold!
