Take a favorite cook book of yours and write in your favorite family recipes on the flyleaf of the book, to avoid having to look them up each time that you use them. My personal favorite cook book is "The Joy Of Cooking". I think that every household should have a copy of this book, beginner and experienced cooks alike.

Not only the flyleaf, but every other space in the book is a place just waiting for a good tip or bit of information to make your cooking and learning experinces more memorable. My 3 daughters started the habit of adding the dates to the recipes when we cooked or baked along with any changes or substitutions we'd made. Those books have provided some happy reading hours now that we've grown older together. My son who was born after the baby daughter was almost 16 years old still gets a big kick out of hearing some of our excursions into baking unknowns. They are precious to me.
I'm always happy to read when others are doing some of the same things we did.
