Pin It now!
While I was doing a little de cluttering this week I came
across this old salt box that I rescued
several years ago.
It makes the perfect recipe box!
I think it’s important to pass on recipes from our mother’s, grandmother’s and Aunt’s.
These handwritten notes on scrapes of paper are pieces of history.
Please……if you’re still lucky enough to have relatives around
ask them about their favorite recipes and have them write
them down before they’re lost……
and especially pass them down to your children. Grandparents are needed, and this is one way
to let them know how important they are.
I especially love and cherish these old recipes…..
they are like a living piece of history to me.
During the war and the great depression they only had pieces of paper to write
things down, if they were lucky.
No fancy recipes cards, taste book or pinterest.
