When inspiration unfolds from a source so established in our lives, greatness can blossom. That inspiration is no one other than Ruby Johnson. Ruby was the namesake for RubyLane.com and is the mother of Ruby Lane’s, Founder & CEO, Thomas Johnson. Thomas’ childhood was imbued with vintage collectibles and fine antiques. However, the aroma of his mother’s cooking was the true ingredient to making their house a home.
Ruby epitomizes a true homemaker. Known for her talented hand in the kitchen, Ruby was our inspiration behind the RubyLaneBlog series, Retro Recipes. The popularity of the blog series sparked the idea for the creation of the Ruby’s Retro Cookbook.
This cookbook is a creative combination of tried-and-true family recipes from Ruby’s very own secret vault, favorite recipes submitted from Ruby Lane shop owners’, and the talented staff members of Ruby Lane. The book is over 150 pages and filled with beautiful photographs.
