Aunt Bunny’s Favorite Recipes

Aunt Bunny’s Cookbook

When I first met Bunny, she had never done any cooking. Her mother was an excellent cook, and had always done the family meals — parties, etc. Though, of course, Bunny usually had watched her Mom — and helped a lot, too. She knew good food, and how things should be done properly — for good nutrition and with high quality. But she really had never put them into actual practice.

The picture on the cover of this book shows her the first day home from our honeymoon, in July, 1949, — on the front steps, about to enter the tiny house we had rented in Kane‘ohe, O‘ahu, Territory of Hawai‘i. This was the day before she first began to study and try out recipes to serve me, her new (first and only) husband. I found that, while I was at work in Honolulu, she was spending much of her time on the floor, lying on the lauhala-mat rug in the living area of our little two-room home, poring over various recipes — trying to decide what to prepare for our meals. This little cookbook is a testimony to her resounding success!
