One year I typed all the recipes I had used since my children were little, one recipe per page. I decorated each page to match the theme of the recipe with graphics and borders.
On the backside of each recipe, I put a photo of someone in the family. When you looked at the recipe page entitled "Stew", for example, the picture on the left was a picture of all the grandchildren entitled the "Smith Stew" (but I used our last name).
GREAT idea. Suggest adding family tasting comments, and a picture of the finished product!
Did you organize them or put them into sections? or was it a generalized album? I don't know if I have the stickability to stay with it but I might try getting into the recipe books and making a few notes as I go to add. I suspect this was a unique gift you discovered and took advantage of. It would truly take quite a while, unless you're already organized and use recipes for a lot of things. I should have been writing all over my recipe book page margins all of these years! I was too focused on getting the yard planned/grown/on its own. Drat!
God bless you, Mama, for being so thoughtful and
loving. : )
