My dad's family (for the most part) are all living in or around Nash.ville. When we were younger, we would go visit them once every few years. One year we went up around Christmas. I am pretty sure it was there where I fell in love with Haystacks. We got a cookbook of my Grandmother's recipes one year and inside, was the recipe to those haystacks.
I loved that book. My father would never let us cook out of it or take the book to my mother's though. One day, I stole my book and have kept it on my bookshelf since. It wasn't his book. It was my book. He got his own copy.
Inside, mine is addressed to me and it says "Good recipes, wonderful memories, and lots of love. I love you, Granny."
I hope to make a trip up to visit that side of the family next summer. We'll see. It's been years since we've visited with them.
