Keeping Recipes in the Family

4 Comments 08 May 2010

As I watch my daughters grow and get married and have homes of their own,I would like to be sure that I can pass to them the wonderful and valuable recipes and tips that I received from the generations before me.
Personally,it has been a challenge to try and get a complete list of ingredients or the proper measurements from my grandmother who makes every dish to perfection,and when asked, just answers “put a glass of this or a pinch of that”. I attempt to follow but it never does come out correctly.

A few years ago,I took it upon myself to spend countless hours with my grandmother observing writing and measuring her handfuls dashes and pours.each recipe was lovingly explained and every simmering pot carefully tended to.This is when I realized that,as we all sat around her table enjoying her labours, she was smiling.This is her gift.I took those pages,each entry a gem,threw in some sentimental anecdotes,and went to Staples.I had them copied and bound into a book and now every women in the family owns one.we have even had many non relatives request one.

Hopefully,in years to come, these recipes will make their way onto the table of my great great grandchildren and it will taste the same as it did today.
The first step is getting a notebook,asking opinions and interviewing to find out family favorites.from there you will see the project will take on a life of its own. It can be done simply,handwritten or typed,children can contribute with their artwork, or much more elaborate books can be made.
With all the technology today it is possible to have your family cookbook published for a small expense.The companies offer a free packet to get you started and they make it so simple and the product is so beautiful.
Some suggestions:

Kids Flower Crafts for the Shabbat table

1 Comment 08 May 2010

by Creative Jewish Mom in Israel.

Cupcake liner flowers are one of those crafts that just make you smile! What’s not to love? A few days ago I showed you some romantic carnation-like versions here. So now I thought I’d share this little colorful bouquet, made the same way just with the addition of some blue-striped liners and some bright paint.

Its easy for kids and moms too!

I’m originally from California, where Mexican heritage has quite a presence, so though I’m preparing for the upcoming Jewish holiday of Shavuos, I just couldn’t help but think how great these would be for Cinco de Mayo! And I even pulled out my authentic Mexican blanket for the photo! And by the way, large vintage sugar and flour shakers (or even salt and pepper, but they’re usually much smaller) make great little vases, just stick the stems into the holes and voila!

For a complete cupcake liner flower tutorial, visit my previous post here. Enjoy!
