Week 8 Gifts

This is our third week of the Gift Giving Ideas Extravaganza. Already!

-Make a comment, and enter our October giveaway for charm squares-

Thanks for the ideas that you shared with us. I think I'm going to put together some cooking baskets with an apron this year.

This week shares our cooking theme: share your favorite recipes! Do you have an amazingly easy casserole that everyone loves? A method of making vegetables that your kids love? Incredible chocolate cake? Share the love!

One year my sister, in college and broke, hand copied all of my Mom's best cookie recipes for me. I treasure those recipes. I especially like seeing her handwriting.

Gather your family recipes, and start copying! Or typing!

Here's my secret for serving broccoli, passed down from my Grandmother, to my Mother, to me.
Steam broccoli. Drain and place in serving dish. Return pan to the stove, add a dollop of real butter, minced onions, heat for about 1 minute, then add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Pour sauce over broccoli!

I cherish the recipes I was given by both of my grandmothers and my Mom. I have already passed them down to my daughters and I love to cook and bake with my grandkids. I think it is so important to carry on family traditions.
