I Love the UPS Man

For Christmas, my mom got me a gift certificate to TasteBook. It's a great site where you can keep track of your recipes that you collect online. You can also add in your family favorites so that you don't have to keep looking for that long lost 3x5 recipe card.

My cookbook came in the mail yesterday.

You are able to give your cookbook a title, pick out a cover and essentially add anything you want to the book. It is totally custom made and can hold up to 100 recipes (if you don't have 100, you get credits to add the pages as you get the recipes).

I spent the better part of a day going through recipes I have collected over the years. Ones that are favorites at our table, and ones that I hope one day will be my daughter's favorites too. I have recipes in here from 2 generations back, including the famous Buckeye recipe from my grandmother.

It turned out perfect and it is already a treasure!
