• This cookbook was written with much love for my sister, Celeste. One day she was at my home and saw a book that my daughter Kourtney had given me to keep all of my recipes in. I enjoy cooking and over the years I have collected recipes from magazines, newspapers, friends, family and yes, even my home economics class from over 20 years ago! This book contained recipes that were family and friends’ favorites. Through the years, I adapted many of them by adding a little something here and there to achieve a unique taste. All of the recipes in this book are proven favorites and have been requested by friends many times. I love to entertain and more often than not, guests leave my home with a recipe of something they enjoyed for dinner. It’s always a great compliment and an honor. So, with much work, fun, and love, I decided to organize favorite recipes of my family into a collection that I can share with you. Enjoy, Vikki

  • As life in the 21st century often leaves the romantic side of our nature in its wake, we find ourselves drawn to time periods in history that once celebrated that which was decorative, fanciful, imaginative, and, yes, romantic. The art of the American carousel commemorated a time when children could escape in a world of knights in shining armor or cowboys galloping across the prairie. For a short ride atop a beautifully carved wooden horse, millions of children experienced the thrill of letting imaginations take them on the ride of a lifetime. We honor the artisans who created these carved treasures, and we cherish our childhood memories because of them - memories that bring generations together for all time.
