As the New Year begins, I also begin my next Christmas gift for my pen pals. Each month I am going to choose one of our favorite recipes in each of several categories, print them out along with a picture of the dish as I make it; then tuck them into the pockets of a bound recipe book I found at our local dollar store. It has sections for several categories such as beverages, breads, desserts, entrees etc.
Knowing me I will dress it up a little with family photos of holidays and stories about the recipes. I just can't leave a good thing alone! If you have far away cousins, aunts or cyber friends you might want to consider this also.

You Rock! I still have my daddy and grama's favorite recipes and what could be better than sharing them with the next generations :-) Thumbs up!
This is exactly what I am doing also this year for my brother's wife! She is Assierian and knows all of her family recipes by heart but she has been wanting to learn our family's recipes (American/German).
