Compiled and written by a veteran teacher of home economics, Making Memories takes you back a step in time to an age when life was just simpler. Culled from the best of author Verna Shelton's many years as a teacher, this collection shares not only tried-and-true recipes but also touches of humor and generous tributes to the past through memories of the classroom, family, and friends. Shelton's professional advice, time-tested techniques, easy-to-understand instructions, and witty banter offer something for every cook, no matter their level of competence-or confidence. In her thirty-two years teaching high school students, she was twice chosen teacher of the year by her colleagues, and she was featured in Who's Who Among America's Teachers. As versatile as all-purpose flour and containing over four hundred recipes, Making Memories provides a practical and very human look inside a remarkable career, proving that we're never too old to learn.
