Boca Raton, Florida, November 17, 2009 — Media 54 LLC of Boca Raton, Florida is publishing a cookbook entitled, “Becky Allen’s Recipes—Gracious Goodies.” Who could have ever imagined that a cookbook would become a great love story? After Becky passed away in 2009, her daughter commented to many friends, family members and business associates that a cookbook including a story about her mother’s life would be a wonderful way to pay tribute to her and to celebrate Becky’s life. So that is what she has done. Imagine for a minute that you were born during the great depression, a share croppers daughter. Or imagine, that your father was a professional baseball player and that you had your first job when you were only 11 years old. And without giving more of the love story away here is some history. Becky and her husband Bill were longtime residents of Skaneateles, New York. They choose to move there in the early 1960’s as it was a beautiful, serene setting to raise a family, start a business and live their American Dream. Becky’s friends would often say about her, “that her life was far more interesting than talking about the latest books that they had read!” She was flattered to hear that. She was the most authentic person many of her close friends and people that knew her had ever known. Becky and Bill Allen had lead remarkable lives.
