As a small girl, my formative years were in Vancouver British Columbia, where I would delight in watching my grandmother, mom, my aunts, cousins and their friends perform the gift of cooking. For them, cooking was indeed a gift they would give to all who would enjoy their sumptuous meals. That meant cooking from scratch, with no mixes or instant "anything". It required a real love of being in the kitchen and acute senses of taste and aroma. It occurred to me today's younger generation simply does not have the advantage of being with people like my grandma (my Baba) Fanny Zonenfeld Prosterman or my mom, Nina Prosterman Blank. But their recipes endure the test of time and I've included them in these pages as a means of passing them along. Many of the recipes in this book have a decidedly "Jewish" character because those are the flavors infused in me as a young girl. However, you'll find other ethnic delicious foods as well as standard American and Canadian fare in these pages. Also, don't be surprised if I have you take out your chopsticks or twirl spaghetti on a spoon. I dedicate this book to my Baba, my mother Nina, my aunts and cousins and their friends who shared those treasured moments in their kitchens with me. But more importantly, I also dedicate this book to the generations yet to develop that special sense of taste and love of cooking.

In 1858, orphaned, Charity Davis must join Ethan Cole's wagon so she can can continue along the Oregon Trail. Can a lady and a rough carpenter be equally yoked? Happily enough, she becomes his Button String Bride. With hope and love, Ethan carves a beautiful wedding chest to protect her wedding gown and beloved button string - all heirlooms to be passed on to their daughters and granddaughters. Hoping to get her mind off herself, Faith Cole makes a trip to Johnstown, Pennsylvania, to visit her great-grandmother in the spring of 1889. Convinced that a disability will keep her from ever marrying, Faith shuns the hope in her mother's wedding trunk. But will she be The Wedding Quilt Bride who makes the next addition to the chest? Many opportunities are opening to women of the late 1920's, but Jo Mayer, a runaway, can only find work as a maid at a San Francisco mansion where illegal activity is brewing. Who can she trust? And how can the Bayside Bride leave her legacy, now that the beloved heirloom trunk has been stolen from her? Carly Simmons would like to enjoy the treasures in her antique wedding chest, but love hasn't been able to catch up with this woman of the fast-paced modern world. When Carly meets an intriguing man through her social services work, could her reaction to him forever label her as The Persistent Bride? These four closely related stories will warm your heart with family love and traditions. Each bride has a legacy of faith to leave with generations to come. And the heirloom chest will forever be symbolic of their love.
