Aunt Ruth passed away on Sunday, November 9, 2003.
She was seventy-eight. We'll miss her.
When you were growing up, did you have one relative who always seemed
to be in the kitchen? Did you have one person in the family who always
seemed to be whipping up tasty treats for family gatherings? In our family,
Aunt Ruth was that relative. For all our lives, Aunt Ruth introduced us to one delicious food after another.
The rest of the family isn't bad in the kitchen either. We've all got a dish or too that makes the mouth water.
Aunt Ruth's Kitchen was created by Jonathan and Steven with the help of our entire family as a place to store the "family
recipes" that we love to break out for those times that we're all together.
We grew up on these recipes and we didn't want to forget their history
or their preparation.
These are our meal time favorites, and they'll always
be special to us.
