  1. Share those Holiday recipe’s with the family now!
    My wife is the oldest living cook for our families, she is a scratch cook and her dishes are loved by all. Many of these are old family recipe’s that were passed down by our mothers and grandmother whom received them the same way. This year as a gift to our family we are putting each basic recipe on a recipe page along with the original recipe and who passed it down. Everyone will go home with a copy.
    A couple of years ago I wrote a family cook book that had ALL the family favorites, A picture of the person who passed down the original and on the reverse I put that persons genealogy.

    This book style is awaiting a patent because of it’s uniqueness and has been copyrighted in 2012.

    I asked family to send me their favorite all time family recipe’s and that is how it all started.

    Great things happen when we share.
