Cooking Up Something Special
Today is my daughter's birthday, and I'm so excited because she and her husband are coming to our house for Easter weekend and to celebrate her special day. As I have been out of town, I likely won't make it to the grocery store before they arrive. Sadly, since I've been away for a week, the cupboard is not too full.
Thankfully, I keep a few things on hand so that when the kids do decide to venture home, it's easy to prepare some of their favorite meals and treats. Like most families, we have some tried and true and cherished recipes. Some of these recipes I was even eating as a little girl, and I love saving these digital recipe cards.
I used to print or write out my cards and keep them in little folder, but now I just save those pages with FOREVER. One of the best things about that is that whenever the kids need one of my recipes, they can just go to my Recipe album and find what they need without even asking me!
It also comes in handy when a friend wants a recipe - I can just send a link to the dish or the whole album.
Since it's Easter weekend, I am sure I'll be making our favorite carrot souffle', and for Kim's birthday I'll either make a Texas sheet cake or Sea Salt Brownies - or both! We love having Rosemary Cashews to nibble on, and it wouldn't be a special breakfast without a Puffed Apple Pancake and Pig Candy.
Hope you might enjoy some of these yourself, and maybe you'll be inspired to start making your own recipe cards and saving them for your children and grandchildren!
