Help me name my family cookbook

Since you all were so creative with Becca's blog, now I need help! I should probably finish the cookbook before I name it, but the name is the most fun part! It will be dedicated to my great grandma and will feature her recipes along with my grandma's and her three sisters' recipes. Also, the rest of the family- mostly the women, with the addition of my husband, my dad, and my brother! (How did I get so lucky?!) Anyway, I had wanted to name it "The ______ Family Cookbook" with my grandparent's last name, but they had the unfortunate luck to have the last name Roach! Yep, "The Roach Family Cookbook" just doesn't sound too appetizing! :-) My grandma and her sisters all have red hair, so I thought about something along that line, but I don't know. I'm sorta stuck! Any clever ideas? My great grandma's name was Mildred so maybe something with that?
If you could make the cover look like a record album you could title it:
(ready for this?)
by Mildred and the Reds.
And if you don't have any hot beet recipes you can call it
by Mildred and the Reds
You guys are making me laugh! People are going to think I'm crazy sittin' here in my cube! Melissavina- I have the perfect picture for a cover if we go that route- there's a picture of my grandma and her sisters (they were probably in their late teens, early 20's) in hot shorts and high heels sitting on top of four separate roadsters! It's a classic picture!
"Our Family's Recipes--
19XX to 20XX"
With the old picture, and a new picture. The more pictures inside (of family) the better!
Hope you do not mind one regular response and one "off the wall" (no pun intended) repsonse:
Roaches Through the Ages – A Memoir of Family Recipes
Off the wall
Pot and Roaches – Smokin' Recipes
I simply named mine "Family and Food," since the book was about recipes that connect family with their food. I thought about it long and hard, but sometimes the most simple can be the most elegant. I would suggest you figure out the purpose of the book and use it to derive the name. You can check mine out - link below.
since i don't think you will be selling your cookbook to major bookstores (i could be wrong)...you could get a little funky
