Give your son or daughter a treasure trove of family recipes for their first move away from home… Nothing cures homesickness more than some good cookin’! Gather together various decorative papers, old-school index cards, paper tags, and photographs to create a cookbook with a personal touch. Write the recipes on the index cards and surround them with stories, photographs, memories, or family jokes that pertain to each recipe. Punch a hole in each corner and attach together with a binder ring… a perfect cooking tool to be stored on a hook in a kitchen cabinet. With a cookbook such as this, home will not seem so far away!
