I was so pleased to see the return of the Dorothy Dean recipes in The Spokesman-Review. My dear mother-in-law was private secretary to Mr. Cowles when I became engaged to her son. She gave me my first Dorothy Dean recipe book as a wedding shower gift 47 years ago. I have used those recipes and information as my kitchen bible all these many years and have acquired two more of the books along the way.
I also had the pleasure of knowing the last Dorothy Dean, Peg Heimbigner. She was a friend to my mother-in-law and also became my client. Peg shared the history of the many Dorothy Deans with me. I look forward to adding these future pages to my collection.
