Some mighty fine meals have been produced in the kitchen at the Crossroads. My mother-in-law, Sarah Windham, was known far and wide as a fabulous cook. One of my most treasured possessions is her recipe box. Below are photos of my mother-in-law, her mother, and myself, all in the same kitchen.  The decor has changed, but not its function: to provide satisfying meals for our family’s enjoyment. I’ll post some of those delicious recipes for you to enjoy, too.

 Click on any of these recipes to read more about them. Happy Cooking!
