Family Recipe Boxes, Grandma's, and Hundreds of Piped Carrots at Cactus Pete's

One of my favorite memories growing up was always seeing this wicker basket and yellow tin that was just big enough to hold some index cards and inside were my great-grandmother's my grandmother's and my dad's recipes all stored in one place.  Every time I would open them I would smile with the memories of making some of those recipes in there or discovering a new way of doing those same recipes or  remember my Grandma Kay taking me to the back kitchen where she was head pastry chef for @cactuspetes.  She would effortlessly command her team and with a smile on her face and as if she was asking a good friend to help her out with hundreds of piped carrots...it still makes me smile to this day  What's a feed about great kitchen gadgets great food without some great conversation and within that conversation why not some great stories! Share with me some favorite memories you have in your kitchen as you grew up or share something that made cooking or baking extra special to you!
