9 Ways to Share Your Most Cherished Family Recipes
Your family's best-loved recipes can be displayed on more than a faded index card. Here's what to do!
Celebrate your family’s favorite recipes by turning them into a forever keepsake. Your options are as endless as your imagination! You can easily tailor it to the tastes of the recipient, delighting them with a gift that they’ll treasure almost as much as the recipe itself.
Fill with your family’s best recipes, saving the piece de resistance for the cover of this wooden recipe box ($50). The box comes with six wooden recipe dividers and can be ordered for either 4×6 or 5×7 recipe cards.
For added inspo, sprinkle in a few recipes that will be new to your family, straight from ours!
One can never have too many cutting boards—high quality ones, especially. This engraved bamboo board ($25) can also serve double duty, whether they use it to help prep the recipe it bears, or turn it into a gorgeous appetizer platter.
For your shorter recipes (no more than 12 lines), this wood framed trivet ($37) can beautifully capture a beloved family dish. Made from a 6×6 tile base, the trivet is as practical as it is pretty—keeping your countertop safe and serving as a heartfelt keepsake.
You can also preserve recipes in your own handwriting, with a book like this 70-page kraft paper notebook ($20). For a one of a kind treasure, worthy of being passed down for generations, ask siblings to jot down their favorite family recipes—and memories, too.
Celebrate everyone’s hands-down favorite recipe with this apron to hang in the kitchen ($35). It can be customized with a generously-sized digital rendering of the recipe in its original handwritten form. You can easily add personal touches like a whisk, or swap out colors to make the apron pop.
Whether displayed as decor or used as a hardworking kitchen essential, these tea towels ($20) are another way to thoughtfully capture a special recipe. You can even draw inspiration from Joanna Gaines a la Magnolia Seed + Supply, and display a group of them as wall art!
You can also preserve one of your family’s most treasured recipes by having the name of it etched into the bottom of an ever-practical Pyrex, like one of these from Teals Prairie & Co. (from $39). The hardest part will be deciding which recipe to use!
Framed Kitchen Art
Tell the story behind a dish with a three-photo framed wall hanging ($23); anchor the original recipe card between photographs of the cooks who made—and love—that cherished recipe.
Made from ultra-absorbent flour sack cloth, these kitchen towels ($15) can blend utilitarian practicality with nostalgic reverence. For a gift that’s as tongue-in-cheek as it is thoughtful, pair a classic photo of the cook with their quintessential catchphrase and one of their most requested recipes.
