Do you love to cook and have family recipes that have been handed down? Or do you have a few handwritten recipes that you treasure that are from a Grandparent, Mom or someone dear to your heart?
I have the good fortune to have quite a few of my maternal Grandma’s hand-written recipes, as well as my Moms, which I treasure. I asked my Mother-n-law if she had any recipes from her Mom or her Mother-n-law that I could have or make copies of. I was so excited to get three recipes that were her Moms and a couple of hers, which I copied. She is still looking for my husband’s paternal Grandmothers recipes, which I hope she can find.
With these treasured family recipes, I decided that it would be neat to use shadow boxes to create a family recipe corner. So, I purchased four shadow boxes, scrapbook paper and cooking tidbits for scrap-booking. Since this is May is National Scrapbooking Month, I was able to hit great sales at Michaels and Joanns for the items I needed and sent approximately $40.00.
I’m so excited about how they turned out and now I have five yummy recipes hanging on my kitchen wall as follows …..
- Tennessee Jam Cake and Cornflakes Chews from my maternal Grandmother
- Brown Sugar Pound Cake from my Mom
- Sour Cream Enchiladas from my Mother-n-Law
- Beef Stew from my husband’s maternal Grandmother
Until next time, happy knitting, crocheting,spinning and crafting!
