Cookbook Collections

Some of my cookbook collections. I really use these cookbooks as reference for feeding my kids... Its a challenge to feed 3 kids with different taste palate. Till this very day I am still figuring out what meals they love to eat and in hopes that I can prepare it the healthiest way possible. I wonder how my mom did it back then? I don't remember ever saying no to what she prepared for us. Anyhoo, speaking of my mom, she is obsessed with laminating recipes from magazines and old torn out cookbooks. If you notice I have a pile there of laminated recipes, that's all from my mother who can do that forever... She is the laminating Queen. Tiyag talaga! Thanks mom!!!😘
