A VERY Special Recipe Box

I wanted to share something with you. Last night we had our Christmas gift exchange with my family and my mom gave all 3 of us (my brother, sister and myself) a recipe box that she made and she even did her best to match it to each of our kitchen decors. Inside are all the secret recipes from herself, my grandma and nanny who are both no longer with us, another grandma, my dad and even some of my aunt's! There are a lot of 'secrets' in this little box and it really meant alot to the 3 of us. It's something that's now been passed to us and we in turn will one day pass to our children. I just wanted to share this with you, but hmmm...I can't share the secrets, not quite yet. For now, they're ours to discover and enjoy!

This is so up my alley! I just love it~ Those recipes that she shared with you are going to be so treasured. When one finds a loved recipe and then it is passed is so hard to get those old fashioned recipes. So treasure this treasure! Your mom did a beautiful job! Wonderful!
