When Vanessa James got married and I was searching for a special gift for her, I decided that I would sit down and write all my favorite recipes in a three-ring-binder cookbook for her. Since all new brides struggle with dishes to cook for two, this just might be something to consider.
Vanessa said this was one of the greatest things that she received. I was so pleased to hear this. The old tried-and-true recipes always please. She even said my commentary with each dish made it special.
Why not plan a family cookbook for that special bride in your family that is getting married? If all the aunts, grandmothers, sisters, cousins and the newly-added in-laws wrote their favorite recipes and added personal commentary, then a recipes collection becomes a journal from special women.
Be sure and select a ringed binder so additional recipes can be added in the future. What a family treasure you will be creating!
Please tell me about unique wedding gifts you have presented!
We all need fresh, new ideas.
