Growing up I watched as my mom cut and glued various recipes into a spiral notebook for a cookbook that she said she was making me. Honestly, I never really cared to much for cooking or anything that had to do with the kitchen so I thought it was a rather silly idea. As I grew I forgot about her book. After my husband and I got married and I soon found myself in love with cooking my mom presented me with the cookbook that she made me.
I can not begin to tell you all how much I love my cookbook. It is so very special to me with all the hard work she put into it, it has amazing recipes in it and she also wrote notes through out it and even pasted cards that I made her when I was a little girl.
I do not have a daughter yet but I have already started making her a cookbook so that one day I can share with her what my mom has shared with me.
I am also a huge cookbook collector and I love anything antique so my mom buys me old cookbooks when she comes across them. Just look at this one!
