in their hands

Some of these recipes, written in my grandparents' handwriting (the cooks' cursive is my grammy's; the draftsmen's block is my peepop's; when he wrote it, my grandmother was usually struggling with arthritis), still smell—like cake and fish and oil. The recipes smell like my grandparents' kitchen. They smell like my grandparents. They smell like childhood. Like love.
