Dinner's On!

If you have not the favor of writing down the recipes your family loves, now would be a perfect time to do so! Go one step further as you  see here from Michelle and create a family  recipe book.  Your family will  love you that much more!

Cookbooking is something that really captures family life. Back in NJ, we would get together with my side of family around holidays, birthdays and for Summer BBQs. Since coming to Newfoundland, we get together for "Family Dinner" which can vary from almost every Sunday to once a month. I wanted to capture my turn, "Mexican Themed". This page is the 1st page in a series; back in August you may have seen the next page on If It's Groovy's Junk Drawer Challenge: Titled "Making Guacamole", for my Family Dinner page I used Making Memories Epoxy Alphas & Close to my Heart Atomic Caps/Lower Alpha Stamp Set inked with Barn Red. Cropped all my photos in tight and fussy cut the finished chili picture. I used all the papers from a pad by GCD Studios with the exception of White Cardstock. I used the From the Kitchen Cricut cartridge to make my pot/crockpot shaped journaling menu on the cardstock.  


  1. This is such a great idea and a great way to share. I used some mid size Creative Memories albums a few years back to do something similar for each of my children. I personalized the first page for each child, and did some embellishments on each page. I added some blank recipe cards and left a few pages for whatever they would like to add. Planning to do something similar for each Grandbaby too. The albums were the 4X6 vinyl Picfolio albums.

  2. Very nice recipe layout and great idea to do a family recipe book.

  3. I love how you recorded this recipe and especially that you included pictures.
