I added little captions such as "mommy loves this recipe..." or "this is one of daddy's favorites..." just to give it a personal touch. Every so often I added one of my favorite scriptures or a little note encouraging her to be a godly woman. I also added who I received certain recipes from-- if they were from someone near and dear to our family.
This book is a constant work in progress and I add to it frequently.... hopefully, someday it will be one of her prized possessions.
Take a peek.....
