Heirloom Recipe Journal from Graphic Image

There's nothing quite like Grandma's cooking and I'm sure most all of you will agree. Since I was raised by my grandmother, I got to enjoy our family recipes on a regular basis growing up. However, I recently realized that although I had eaten all those delicious meals like Granny's Meatloaf, her Homemade Dressing and Banana Pudding - I had no idea how to make any of them. It's important to me that I am able to not only make our family recipes for my children, but to pass on our recipes for generations to come.

I recently made a post on how to make Granny's Old Fashioned Pound Cake. To get our recipe started, Granny opened up her tin filled with hundreds of papers and written on each one was a different family recipe. Most of the papers had turned yellow, they were torn and the ink was fading. Not to mention the disorganization. Of course the grandchildren down the road might cherish it all the same, but there was no guarantee that these recipes would even hold up let alone be legible by then and I really wanted to preserve these.

That's why I was so excited when my personalized Recipe Journal from Graphic Image arrived...

And the journal is held together using smyth-sewn binding.

I fell in love with my Recipe Journal instantly. In addition to the beautiful leather, the fine construction and high quality, it had all the features I wanted to keep the recipes organized. There are 240 lined pages and 6 different sections (Brunch, Appetizers, Dinners, Barbecue, Desserts, Holiday). No more flipping through tons of papers searching for that Pound Cake Recipe. Granny has it written first under the Desserts tab as you see below...

I felt that the Recipe Journal was very reasonably priced especially considering the high quality leather and construction - regardless, can you really put a price on your family recipes? It made me teary eyed just watching Granny begin to write her famous Old Fashioned Pound Cake recipe. Just knowing that this is something my children will cherish and have for generations to come made my heart happy!
