This author took me along for a ride down my own memory lane as she shared her delightful childhood memories growing up in a close-knit loving family. I found her book to be entertaining and filled with humor, family photos, and fun-filled essays, hilarious radio broadcast conversations, followed by valued family recipes. As she wrote about the delicious food, I could almost smell the aroma! Yvonne found a humorous way to reach out to her readers showing a way through any difficulty in life.
