Simply Sentimental: Recipe Book + recipe cards

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

Continuing on with another sentimental idea, this time I want to share a gift I received- a recipe book with hand written recipes.  I thought you might enjoy some recipe cards to create your own.

A couple of years ago I mentioned to my mom that I would love to have my favorite family recipes in her handwriting.  She took my (rather obvious) hint and created a recipe book for me.  My sister also compiled a recipe book filled to the brim of holiday desserts.  I love it!
While technology is awesome and storing recipes online is fabulous, there is nothing quite like having tried and trues in my mom’s handwriting.  I think this is a perfect gift for mom to daughter, grandma to granddaughter, etc. Anyone who loves to cook or wants to learn- would appreciate something like this.

To help you get started in the process, here are some recipe cards that I created for my 30days followers.  There are 4 to a page.  I use Avery postcards A TON.  They are the perfect size for a project like this. You can buy them at Target, Walmart, or any office supply store.  Or you could just use cardstock, print them out and cut them up.

For personal use only.
What is your favorite family recipe?

    So nice of you to share the printable cards. Years ago, when my son was moving into his first apartment, I wrote (most people did not have computers then!) my friends and family and asked that they write out and send their favorite recipes to me so that they could be included in a recipe box for Joels first home. It was a hit and great fun for everyone. Toni
