The Mace Family Cookbook

I have an old cookbook from David’s great grandmother.  I love that cookbook.  If I am going to make anything I have to check the Mace Family cookbook for a recipe first.  If there is one in there I have to make it over any other recipe I have. I guess that’s part of being married to a Mace.  

The pages are yellowed and the corners are dog eared but that just shows it has been loved a lot. I want to share some of the “wisdoms” that she has sprinkled throughout the book.

My favorite recipe is this one:


  • Take 1 Green Valley, half dozen boys, 2 or 3 dogs, a pinch of Pecan Creek and some pebbles
  • Mix the boys and dogs well together
  • Put them in the Valley stirring constantly
  • Pour the creek over the pebbles and the boys feet
  • Sprinkle the valley with wild flowers
  • Let the deep blue sky spread over all
  • Bake in the sunshine
  • When brown, set in a cool bathtub – lightest of dirt first
  • Then they will be preserved as good men later

Sometimes when I’m standing at the kitchen sink looking out over the valley I can hear the giggles of the boys as they run around the valley and splash in the creek.  Their laughter coming up across the fields and into the kitchen window.
