In recent years I have discovered what a joy it is to have cousins. My uncle expatriated to Mexico in the 70s and had several daughters by a Mexican woman; but my mother and my uncle were on bad terms for most of my life and so I never met any of my cousins until about four years ago. Since then, a few of them have immigrated to the US with their families and we have been able to keep in touch and form a real and loving relationship.

One thing that all four of my cousins and I have in common is a love for cooking and fond memories of our grandmother (she died 15 years ago). I was able to spend much more time with our grandmother because of proximity and as a result inherited her fabled recipe box with recipes dating back through 60 years of family history. I would like to make a cook book/scrap book for each of my cousins with selected family photos and recipes. The plan is to photo copy the originals to preserve our grandmother's handwriting and to type out a Spanish translation so as to include my cousin's unique heritage as part of the family history.

Here's where you come in:
I understand Spanish fairly well, but can neither speak nor write it with any accuracy and I do not know the regional equivalents to some of the products mentioned in the recipes (i.e.: Bisquik). Not to mention dealing with metric conversion. Is there someone out there (or several someones) who would be willing to help me with the translation? I want to select 10-12 recipes, but one person needn't translate them all. A bonus to helping is that you would be getting your hands on some really yummy recipes.
