465. Gather my favorite recipes into a cookbook
Updated October 11, 2010
I bought a photo album with sleeves to hold 4×6 photos. I filled each sleeve with a blank 4×6 index card. Then I got out my trusty purple pen and a box of colored pencils and started recording my “greatest hits” recipes. Only the best of the best have made it into the book. There are recipes handed down from my mom and grandmother, recipes from friends, recipes I’ve made up, and recipes from book and magazines that I’ve tried and loved. I write them out and then draw a little illustration in colored pencil for each one.
I’m just getting started and have about 20 recipes recorded in the book so far. But one day it will be full and will be a treasure for my family.
