I’m digging out my mom’s easy to make 4 ingredient appetizer recipes for you today. I look at my mom’s recipe box every day sitting on a shelf in my living room. It’s truly a treasure. I only wish it had more appetizer recipes in it. I was busy working and thought my mom would live forever. I wish I had asked her for all of her recipes and written them down with her. Are you like me and can almost smell the homemade salads your mom made? I miss the freshly ground pork sausage my dad made.

My parents would buy the pork on sale from a certain butcher and bring it home to grind and make the best sausage in the world. Dang, no one has that recipe! Oh, how I wish I had that one for sure!

I know a lot of them were from my mom’s memory, but I wish I had some of her recipes that no one can find anywhere. Please remember to ask your grandma, your aunts, uncles, sisters or whoever for their favorite recipes. Don’t wait, do it today or tomorrow. It’s fun to hand these appetizer recipes down from generation to generation.
