Family Christmas Cookbook

Since 1997, my husband's family has made a tradition of creating and sustaining an on-going family cookbook which last year expanded into its third binder.

At Christmas each family prepares a recipe page and a brief family history for the year to be added to each family's book. As the children grow and graduate from high school, they become contributing members to the cookbook and get their own binder of recipes. This year I prepared 19 copies of this scrapbook page for our celebration. The back of the page gives events of the year along with photos.

On Sunday we will be preparing our dishes and bringing our recipe pages to share with our family as we celebrate Christmas together this year. It will be a great day of fun and fellowship served up with a whole lot of love!!!
