How many of our moms have recipes on little note cards, tabbed on a dozen random cookbooks and can never find the one she is looking for? Can I get a raise of hands!? This year for Christmas, my siblings and I were able to compile a pretty neat gift to give to our mom. We took a variety of old family recipes, note card recipes and random cookbook recipes that our mom has been using for years and even in the past years. We gathered her favorites. We then took the time to photograph each recipe in its own way to accompany the written recipe. Those that know much about the creative process know…… this took FOREVER. And when I say forever, I mean forever. I was photographing with every drop of light available and editing every night. But like all good things, the completion was totally worth it. A 150+ page book packed full of recipes that have memories and joys attached to each.
Our friends at Blurb created a fabulous product. It printed so perfectly. Be sure to sign up to get their newsletters and coupons to print your own memories and joys. Here is a short look at the cookbook and some of the images inside. Enjoy!
