From Our Kitchen To Hers

November 27, 2012

Many wonderful ladies contributed to this special cookbook for my dear friend Colleen’s wedding shower. The cookbook is a collection of keepsake recipes that will hopefully become special to her family. The recipes celebrate generations of family cooks and the strong memories that form in the kitchen.

I asked Colleen’s friends and family to submit their favorite recipes and to include a note on why the recipe is so loved. Over 70 recipes ended up in the book! This is not an easy project but totally worth the effort. I hope this inspires you to create something like this for a friend one day.

I love this! I am planning a shower and would like to make cookbooks for all of the guests as party favors. Where did you find the image for the corner “from the kitchen of”? I am going to be compiling the cookbooks in a Word document and then printing it booklet style. I would love to have that image on each recipe page. THANKS!

I found it on and edited it in photoshop. I am happy to send you a copy of the image. I formatted this cookbook in Word.
