Grab your knitting needles and come relax with me.
Thursday, January 3, 2008


A new meme is thundering across the knitting blogosphere...and it's not really knitting related. The ladies at Mason Dixon Knitting wants us to show them and everyone else our recipe boxes.

I don't use boxes per se, I favor 3 ring binders and page protectors. I have enough clutter issues without having loose bits of paper in my kitchen. My mom had one--it was so cute too, but it was mainly a big mess.

First though, I started a family tradition of giving a new family recipe book as a wedding present to the new couple. (Despite the fact that the first and so far only recipients are now divorced, I will continue this tradition with my remaining siblings and my divorced sib when he remarries. He gave the recipe book back to me and I now have a template of my creation). I am really proud of how this book came out.

In addition to the recipes from both families, I included stories and photographs of the bride and groom. Many of the recipes came from me--expounding on my Mom's old recipes.

Jamey's family has some awesome recipes his Mom put together for us for Christmas. Jamey had transcribed a few of those years earlier and I added our new family recipe faves. I also have an old faithful Betty Crocker cookbook from the 60s, I use for basic recipes.

Someday, Jamey wants to do make a recipe book like we made for Phil and Ashley for his family, but bound in a 3 ring binder.

You know I do have a recipe box, I love it because it is bee themed, but it's just decorative.

The recipe books area so nice. Great idea. I had actually just found my mom's recipe book when the Mason-Dixon thing came out--quite coincidentally--it had been in a box for over a decade. I just have to remember to photograph it!
