A few nice recipes images I found:
Great Grandma’s Pickle Recipes
Image by Chiot’s Run
Last week my mom and I went down to my grandma’s house to go through some stuff. I asked my cousin about a few of my grandma’s recipes so I could take a few photos of them. She showed me all of grandma’s recipe boxes, they were filled with cards she’d written recipes on and clippings from magazines. She also showed me my great grandma’s recipe book. It was a collection of recipes scratched and pasted in to an old Railroad Ledger. It’s so great to see old well-used recipes written by my grandmothers.
I’m planning on taking these and making each one, taking photos and making a cookbook of family recipes, including photos of the recipes written by my grandma’s. I think this will make a wonderful Christmas present for family members.
