In 1990 our Rosary Altar Society compiled a Cookbook entitled Family Favorites.  There are many of my recipes in there.  In fact, I submitted so many recipes that a lot of them don't say my name, but say submitted by a friend.  Even though my sons were young at the time I purchased one for each of them.  In this way they have a lot of my recipes.  Of course, there are many that are not in there, but it is a start of handing down memories.

I wish I had one of those cookbooks!!  Do you have an extra? Wink
Marie - thanks for such a lovely memory.

The kids at church love my cookies so I've started buying little recipe boxes and putting in lots of blank cards and cards with the cookie recipes.  Each young kid gets one on the birthday.

That's great. Wish I had been apart of something like that. This is a great and easy way to pass on recipes. Thanks for sharing

A couple of years ago at Christmas I made up a cookbook on the Kodak web site.  I called it "Holiday Baking with Barbara".  It was really a fun project as my husband became a food Photographer, and we gathered all sorts of props for various holidays.  I made a baked good for each holiday, we took a picture of it, loaded it on the web site and then I entered the recipe.  There are only about 9 or 10 recipes, but there is a picture of each one.  I bought one for my daughter, daughter in law, and my two nieces as gifts.  They loved the idea and the recipes.  I even had two close friends that ordered copies for themselves.  I keep thinking I should make another one with different recipes, but I haven't gotten up the energy yet to do it.

I purchased Now You're Cooking software several years ago and I am slowly adding all my special recipes to the data base. My sons (and their future wives!) will have the password and access to everything I'm putting in there. I'm also copying my favorite recipes from cookbooks into this data base, especially since many of my cookbooks are either too stained or pages falling out that they won't last much longer!

Unfortunately, we don't have any left.  They sold out right away and that was 21 years ago.  We have new people and new officers and they don't seem to want to do another cookbook, which is sad.  It is an easy way to make money for the organization and a wonderful keepsake.

That's a great idea with the recipe box.  I'm sure they appreciate it and love having the recipes for your delicious cookies!!!

Great way to pass on recipes.  When my children set up housekeeping, I wrote out recipe cards of family favorites, put them in recipe boxes and gave them to them to my young adults for Christmas.
