Some of us still have collections of favorite recipes on cards or in cookbooks. Others have tossed these in favor of Internet searches. Think back … What are some of your favorite recipes? Where did they come from and what memories do they evoke? Is there one you would share on Retrospect? Share your recipes stories forward.

Memorabilia translates as “things to be remembered,” and most of us have saved items with sentimental value such as photographs and letters. Some of us have also saved favorite concert and theater programs, and a few of us have even saved report cards, children’s baby teeth, and long outdated address and appointment books. Think back…did you or do you collect autographs, travel souvenirs, trading cards, political buttons, military medals, or collectibles related to an important person, organization, or event? Have you displayed your memorabilia in frames or is it collecting dust in storage? Share your memorabilia stories forward.
