Why Create a Family Recipe Book?

It is easy to make a family recipe book.  A family recipe book is actually a collection of memories of our lives. Old family recipes will disappear with time if we do not make an effort to preserve them.  Do you remember sitting around the table eating your favorite meal with your family?  What was your favorite meal at your grandmother’s house?  Did you enjoy a favorite snack when you came in from school?  What were your favorite smells?  I treasure the memory of walking in the house after school — smelling mama’s chocolate pound cake coming out of the oven.

Making a family cookbook is a great way to pass those recipes on to the next generation.  Learn how to make a family recipe book on this page.  Keep scrolling for ideas and steps.

congo squares recipeMama’s congo squares cookie recipe has been in this family for over 60 years.  I can almost smell the congo squares in the oven. In 1954, the Tate family lived in Pendleton, SC. We loved to gather round and “lick the bowl” while they baked! Mama always made congo squares for church picnics, long trips in the car to visit relatives, and of course at Thanksgiving and Christmastime.

coloring books for senior womenColoring books for senior women have come a long way, baby! When I started this fun new hobby about 4 years ago, adult coloring books were hard to find. As more and more of us discovered the joy of simply coloring a few minutes a day, more and more artists created beautiful books for us to color.

You can find funny coloring books, floral coloring books, and even inspirational coloring books. Like so many of you, I am busier than I have ever been in my life! But I always take 15 minutes a day for coloring. Coloring helps me to focus, to rest my mind and relax a bit. I even have coloring on my daily list of things to do! If you have not tried adult coloring books yet, now is the time.
