Cookbook/ Photo Album/ Tribute

A year after Grandma’s death, everyone wanted some (or all) of her recipes, therefore shared all with everyone! Some recipe cards were pictured to remind us of her. Many historical family photos from every child’s family were included. Then there were recipes from family members that we all wanted. It became a large endeavor that included submissions from all and became a very uniting family project.

We used her favorite sayings and flower.
An old family recipe helps continue traditions.
Some recipes featured family pastimes.
Each child and grandchild who served a mission were featured. I tried to match their service location to the recipe.

Everyone donated so many pictures. I made many collages at the end. Much effort was made so every child’s family is on every page.
The new babies are featured.
Good times remembered.
Historic photographs ensure everyone has a copy.

Ends with a heartfelt dedication.
