I can still remember her sitting at the kitchen table, pencil in hand, copying down the recipes. My Grandma McIlmoyle preserved recipes of her mother's and collected favorite recipes from friends and family. These were all carefully transcribed into small booklets and note papers in her own handwriting.

These days, everything comes out of a box, and that kills me. I feel like the love and fellowship that comes with your family sitting down for one meal together has been lost. Alexe: Icebox pie is something I had never heard of before I moved to Mississippi, but it makes sense. Lemon icebox pie is the classic, but we get some really good peaches in this part of the world during the summer.
