Passing recipes down to our children is a great way to keep the recipes in the family and keeping traditions for years to come. Lynne created this clean and classic cookbook titled Recipes from Mom. We know there will some tears when this gift is opened. The recipes are written in Lynn’s hand which makes it even more memorable. This project is perfect for holiday gifts, but you will want to start now collecting the recipes and making duplicates or archiving them.

I just love the Canvas Corp Brands ~ Farmhouse Kitchen Menu Cards.
You do have to be a bit creative to make them fit but it is worth it!
I will be asking my daughter if there are any other recipes from
her childhood that she would like to include in her book.
I have to say, I just LOVE the Farmhouse Kitchen Recipe Cards!
They come 12 to a package, 4 styles, 3 cards each!
One of my most coveted recipes came from a friend of my mothers.
I was given the recipe but told not to share….except with family.
Now, my daughter is the proud owner of that recipe
GUARD IT WELL!
I kept the back page simple as it slips into the pocket of the
I hope you have enjoyed my Heritage Recipe Book,
have learned from my mistake,
and are inspired to pass along your family recipes.
It is important to us to continue to share the message that we need to share and save recipes and traditions that are near and dear to us.
