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.

gifts for people who like birds Welcome to my collection of gifts for people who like birds. Every year, it seems more and more friends are watching the birds – perhaps we need to return to nature for a bit of peace.

Gifts for bird watchers can range from bird feeders to bird houses to a new pair of binoculars or a great bird book. Whatever you choose, encourage each other to spend some time with the birds. It’s good for all of us. Read the rest of this entry
