I thought I'd share some home made Christmas gift ideas here at least once week now through December!
First up: Home Made Recipe Book Collection.
You can make this as simple or elaborate as you want...just depends on your time, craftiness and budget!
Use a binder, page protectors, dividers, and pencil/pen pouch.
Hand write or use a printer to print out some favorite recipes. Include recipes that have been in your family for years if you can-that adds a special touch.
Add special notes to the recipes and stories that may go along with a particular recipe.
Add family pictures, drawings, and whatever else you can think of to add a personal touch.
This is a simple version, but really there are so many ways you can decorate and personalize a home made recipe book. You could even make several of the exact same book so everyone in the family has the same "Family Cookbook".
