Family Recipes

posted in: ART JOURNAL | 0

I don’t know about your family, but when my gang gets together, there is going to be some food involved!  Many of our memories are from around the dinner table.  Because of that, last Christmas I decided to make a family recipe book to make copies of and give to each of my eight kids.  It is part art journal, part recipe book, and part scrapbook. Since I couldn’t share the secret last year, I thought I would give you a look at a few of the pages this year.  Maybe you will even want to start some pages for your family!

Every recipe has a front and back that I laminated together.  This one is from the annual white elephant party our church has every December.

This one is for my husband’s famous culinary accomplishment…yummy peanut butter French toast.

Another favorite, mashed potatoes and gravy.  I used a gelli plate to make most of these backgrounds!

And finally, my daughter the Waffle Queen!
