Family and friends in the DM community send me all sorts of different ideas, as well as actual books, photos and stories that relate to something they have read on the website. Since I would like to share all these interesting tidbits I receive, I have added this POTPOURRI SCRAPBOOK PAGE. Hopefully as the pandemic dissolves into just a bad memory, this page will replace all the odd musings generated during Covid19.

While the original meaning of POTPOURRI from the French (1605–15) literally translated rotten pot, I prefer the modern synonyms (hodgepodge, mishmash, patchwork) and the definitions:

A mixture of dried petals of roses or other flowers with spices, kept in a jar for their fragrance.
A musical medley.
A collection of miscellaneous literary extracts.
Any mixture, especially of unrelated objects, subjects, etc.

So any ideas or thoughts that strike a cord, please send them along to share@delicious memories.com. and I will post.


I received this uplifting video entitled JOY! Sent for no particular reason, just the thought it would provide a little JOY. I hope you will enjoy as much as I did.

No, I didn't but it is really cool. Take a look.

My college friend, KathyDB, saw this book and just mailed me a copy as she thought I might enjoy it . How sweet of her! Kathy has Italian ancestors (related I believe to the Cincinnati LaRosa family) and is interested in our Italian cooking heritage. When I thanked her for the book she wrote and said..."So glad the book arrived. I saw this online and it said that it is one of the most comprehensive books regarding Italian heritage and the evolution of their cooking. I thought of you immediately. " I have come to learn Kathy has little time to read and she shares in a later email ... "Since I don't have much time to read at this stage of my life, I am looking forward to your "book report." I promise to read and report back as soon and I finish. In the meantime CLICK HERE for the Google review.
