'Katie' Howerdd - Sapphire's first ~ First Lady. From 1954 until her passing in the late 1990's, 'Mimi' as family and close friends call her, was the gracious host of Sapphire Valley!
More of the history of Gene and Katie Howerdd is available on our historical pages
(which will be expanded later in 2012).
For family members, friends and frequent guests, enjoying her home cooking was always a treat and we are honored to present some of her dishes here, taken directly from her old wooden recipe box!
