Old Photo Friday: Baking Pies

WHO: (Great-Grandma) Helen Cavey with (Mom) Jennifer
WHAT: Baking pies
WHERE: Helen's house; Cottage Grove, OR
WHEN: 1967-69

With the holidays around the corner, I think a lot of baking (a skill that I have yet to fully master) and the amazing recipes and cooking skills of my father's Grandmother, Helen.  

Just take a look at her kitchen.  It reminds me of the home kitchen of the great Julia Childs, whose husband put her essential cooking utensils on a stenciled cork board.  Never far out of Helen's reach were her measuring cups...just what every good baker needs close at hand.
