Bon Bons

IMG_1549

The other day I took out the tattered, hand written cookbook that sits in the book rack near my recliner. Coffee stained pages, marks where spoons were set on it by sticky little hands, a book of the past. I have looked through it many times and checked a recipe or two but have never really thought about what it means to me. Many of the pages are hanging by a thread and others are torn and faded. There is no cover or binding and it is a sad looking example of a cookbook! I left this book behind with everything else in Saudi. It came in a shipment the year after our relocation and stands as a reminder of what was and how far we have come. I found this recipe for Bon Bons which I had not made in many years, they were fantastic!
