Every family has a recipe with some history. A magic soup that will send you on the road to recovery when you’re sick or those cookies that you swear you can actually taste the magic of the holidays with every bite you take. Maybe it’s an award winning pie or the perfect potluck casserole. It’s that one recipe that always turns out just right and the one that people are always asking “Can you write that down for me?” It’s the one that has been around for ages, passed down from generation to generation and is most likely on a recipe card that looks like it will fall apart any second.
Special family recipes like these are treasured memories, part of your family’s traditions and deserve to be honored and cherished. One of my favorite things to work on over at my Etsy shop, Preserves Designs, is custom recipe art printables. Sure those tattered and stained recipe cards or scraps of paper are special, but they are kept in boxes or tucked into cookbooks so we don’t lose them. Why not appreciate that special old recipe and it’s memories by turning it into a piece of art for your kitchen, pantry or dining room? I love to take your treasured bits of history and turn them into a piece of personalized artwork that you can print, frame and hang or display in your home. I think that your most special family recipes deserve to be celebrated!
And it’s so easy. After purchasing the printable in the shop, you just email me the recipe details: the title, ingredients, instructions and then leave the rest to me…I format it for display, add a great graphic and colors of your choice, and then email you a draft to approve. It’s that simple. Then you can print it at home, online or at a local copy store. What a wonderful gift to yourself, or for your friends and family to mark their special occasions…bridal showers, wedding gifts, house warmings…ensuring their special memories are preserved for the future.
So choose and create a custom piece of artwork that will Preserve a little of the past. And sweeten the future by sparking an interest in little chefs who will want to learn to create those best recipes!
Afterall, our most special recipes contain secrets and memories, laughter and healing powers and most especially life lessons and love…
What are some of your family’s most special recipes?
