Every community has its good cooks - those people who have a personal touch, who can take the same recipes and the same ingredients you do, but make everything taste so much better.
Mary Hayward is one of those cooks and she shares her favorite recipes and her best instructions here in My Personal Touch. Mary raised nine children on these recipes, and many became her children's particular favorites.
For the benefit of beginners, she lays out each recipe in first and second steps. For the more experienced, she shares her skill and the secrets that give her dishes such a personal touch.
