“It was such a wonderful family operation,” said Frysinger.

When the first edition was published in 98 ′, the entire VanDyke clan gathered at a Dayton restaurant over Christmas to distribute the completed cookbook.

“We had so much fun at this lunch,” Frysinger said. “Because, you know, we didn’t have the opportunity to get together like that (anymore). … We were there and someone said, ‘You know, we have to do this more often. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Over 20 years ago, this lunch turned into monthly family outings and an annual Christmas cookie-making reunion. Between meetings, the cookbook is often the source of phone calls and emails, as family members stay connected through the recipes.

“My niece cooks quite a bit,” said Frysinger. “She (cooked) something and I said ‘Where did you get this recipe from?’ And she said ‘It’s in the cookbook!’ … In fact, she ordered another cookbook because hers is so marked by its use that she wanted to start with something new.

This year’s theme for Frysinger’s annual Christmas letter is the cookbook. As it has been over 20 years since the first printing, the family decided to republish the book and print new copies so that a new generation of VanDyke can carry on the tradition.
