Create a Family Recipe Book

It is great when you have a way to combine two activities. Help your child learn to make a special recipe and then preserve it in a cookbook they can take with them throughout their lives.

Before the Corona Virus / Covid 19 quarantine, when would you have had an opportunity to create a family recipe book?

This is a great opportunity to gather all of the index cards, scraps of paper, and torn magazine pages your favorite recipes are on now and to put them in a format that can be passed down to future generations.

  • Uncle Bob’s Trout Almondine
  • Grandpa’s Brisket
  • Mom’s Fried Chicken
  • Nana’s Seven Layer Cake, Coconut Pie, and Chocolate Pie
  • Keith’s Fried Fish
  • Uncle Randall’s Hush Puppies
  • Noella’s Tortillas
  • Pam’s Holiday Candies

If you want to put a spin on the activity, you can create a little cookbook for different holidays or special occasions.

For example, you could do a Thanksgiving cookbook showcasing the dish each person usually brings.

In our house it would be something like,

  • “Grandma Betty’s Coke Salad”
  • “Aunt Jesi’s Corn Casserole”
  • “Aunt Sylvia’s Cinnamon Rolls”
  • “Cousin Amanda’s Buttermilk Pie”
  • “Uncle David’s Biscuits”
  • “Aunt Carolyne’s Cornbread Dressing”
  • “Pam’s Chocolate Oaties”

A cookbook like that would make a lovely holiday gift for the whole family.

If you have a special recipe, you can have it preserved on a cutting board, a plate, a serving platter, or even on wallpaper for the kitchen.
