Family Cookbook

A while back I was thinking about how I might pass our family recipes on to our children, and I decided to make a scrapbook style recipe book with photos to copy and present to each child as they leave home.  (Our oldest will be graduating from high school this May, so the kids leaving home is going to be happening sooner than I'd like to think!)  I am making each page 8.5 x 11 size so they are easy to make color copies of and place in plastic sleeves in a binder.
Here are a few of my finished pages that I scanned to show you.
It's been fun to go back through our family photos and find food pictures to use- some of these recipes I've been making for over 20 years!

It's been a fun project and one I will be working on for awhile yet.  Our kids are thinking it's a good idea too-hopefully their wives will also...
I know that there I nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live.  That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil-- this is the gift of God.
Ecclesiastes 3:12-13


  1. What a fun idea! I also love that the book will have your handwriting in it. I have always felt sentimental when I see my own mothers handwriting!

  2. I'm not talented enough to scrapbook, but I did put my mother's recipes into a book using Shutterfly. Your kids will love it!

  3. Carmen, I treasure your great-grandma Wiebe's booklet of her favorite recipes....nice that you are carrying on the tradition.
