I received a copy of a wonderful cookbook prepared by Shari Marsh. It is made up of recipes from the Marsh family. The book includes those from recipe cards, slips of paper and backs of church bulletins. Shari said her mother-in-law was an excellent cook and now we can enjoy some of her recipes, too.
