Enjoy recipes and memories begun when Napoleon Bonaparte "Pole" Hemphill was born in Red Rock, Texas, in 1875. Six generations later, we're sharing favorites that go from healthy to decadent. From breakfast to backpack to bedtime and some beverages, too. Find yummy gluten, sugar, or fat free recipes and others unapologetically indulgent. Some make quick, easy meals but others take a bit more time. There's chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! All them are tried and true. We Hemphill cooks run the gamut from the 2-year-old who already loves helping her Neena in the kitchen to others who've shared their love at the dinner table for 75 years or more. We are pros and amateurs. Some of us love to cook; others would rather not. Our common bond, besides family, is a collection of recipes we've enjoyed so much we pass them around and share them from one generation to the next. These recipes are sure to please girls and boys of all ages and we've even got a few sure to please a hungry hound or two.
