The Byron Bertrands love to cook! Ginger’s minor is in home economics, Byron frequently cooks Cajun favorites, and Aimee and Rebecca love to bake whenever they get the opportunity!

In December 1990, the first edition of “Bertrand Favorites” was published. Four printings were performed and approximately 525 copies were given to family members and friends.

In 2008, we planned to have more copies printed when we found out that the publisher destroyed our originals without our knowledge. As a result, Ginger and Rebecca Bertrand retyped the recipes and distributed 250 additional copies.

In 2009, we formatted the cookbook for online publishing and added 11 new selections. “Bertrand Favorites” contains 240 delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes and a “Helpful Tips” section.

The artwork was drawn by a very dear friend of ours, Kirk Coykendall, who worked with Ginger at ExxonMobil in the 70s. Sadly, Kirk is no longer with us, but Ginger cherishes the personalized pictures he drew for her over the years.

We hope you enjoy these recipes as much as us and that you’ll share them with your family members and friends!
