I’m not sure what happened to all of my mother’s cookbooks when she died. There were two that I would love to have had but hope they’re still in the family. That being said I’ve spent some time trying to put my favorite, tried and true, recipes all in one spot for my two kids. They can do what they want with them but they’re all in one place in my kitchen.
Hubby made me a wonderful recipe box a couple years ago to put our favorite recipes in and it’s getting full. I’ve been going through it to pull any duplicates and some recipes are new to try so I put a check mark on the cards that are tried and true.
I’ve gone through or in the process of going through all of my cookbooks and marked the recipes with a sticker that I want to try or once tried and liked, they’ll go on cards in the box, too. Some cookbooks I’ll keep forever, such as, a gift from a friend that used to live in Georgia and the other is a Virginia Farm Bureau cookbook that I was given when I worked for them several years ago.
I also have three binders full of recipes that friends have sent me or that I found on Facebook that look good. I’m always looking for new recipes since I love to cook.
The other two cookbooks are one that my kids bought their dad called Redneck Grill and my, used a lot, Ball Canning Book.
My mother was a member of the Paint Bank Women’s Auxiliary and they put together two cookbooks a few years ago to raise money for the Paint Bank Fire & Rescue. They are in reprint, and I will have both of them very soon. All of the ladies in Paint Bank were awesome cooks.
One thought on “Family Cookbook”
I love cook books and the recipe holder you gave me! I have a tendency now to use the all knowing internet to find recipes that I want to use certain ingredients. But I still go back to my special cook books for recipes I love. In 2007 I made my own cook book with recipes from family and friends. My daughter was getting married and wanted to do something special. I made several bound copies and gave them to my family who attended her wedding. I called it Abbondanza! With Love. It was dedicated to my sister, Barbara. We loved to cook and share recipes together. Anyway, that is my story. Love you and will see you soon.
