A few months ago I finished up this short & simple minibook — it’s just recipes + pictures + little comments of our favorite sweet treats from 2010. I love incorporating recipes & menu’s & favorite foods into minibooks because I envision looking back through this in ten or twenty years, rediscovering long-lost recipes we no longer cook. I imagine exclaiming with Rust, “Oh, I forgot we used to make that all the time! That was our favorite!”
I have only been married four & a half years! I really didn’t start cooking until then… so I have only been finding recipes & cooking for a little over four years… can you imagine having a cooking history of ten years, twenty years? All those recipes to try! That’s exciting to me. : )
I think my mom influences me in this area. She LOVES to cook & bake & make wonderful things. It is so fun to hear her talk about recipes she’s been making for twenty years, or recipes she rediscovers that she made when her & Dad were first married. I love the thought of chronicling through various means (cookbooks, minibooks, etc) your “cooking history.”
I love this little minibook. I bought it from Etsy seller, Cindy Ruijgrok, who incorporates binder mechanisms into her minibook kits. I love her stuff & have to resist buying all her mini’s. : ) You may remember I used one of her kits for my Home Minibook.
This kit is gray + yellow — right up my alley!
Thanks for looking!
