Twila Van Leer: A 4-H project became a family treasure, recipe book
Joella Peterson's 4-H project, undertaken when she was 9 years old, just gets better with age. When challenged to come up with a personal project when she was a little girl, her idea was to create a family cookbook featuring a recipe for each one of her ancestors.
Today, Joella is the children's services manager for the Provo Library and lives in Springville. Her mom lives in Bluffdale. But they still are a team in promulgating family history for the younger generations. And the cookbook helps. It's a tangible reminder of people who went before, paving the way for today's generations
