Keepsake Cookbooks

I was looking at The Secret Ingredients website about Keepsake or Heirloom Cookbooks and stumbled onto their blog. If you need a neat idea for a wedding present or a shower gift check them out. You submit recipes, pictures and choose a layout then for about $200 you get a beautiful cookbook.

As we all know if they are not edible, favors tend to get stuck under the car seat, in a drawer or even the trash can.
[A wedding favor doesn’t need to be flashy or expensive. In this case, the sentiment “it’s the thought that counts,” really means something. You can say “thanks” to the family and friends who help you celebrate your big day with a small gift that “gives” forever: a recipe.

First, you have to pick the right recipe. Here are some suggestions:

  • Go with something regional or seasonal: Does your family put its own twist on a favorite regional dish? Is it warm, comforting soup season, or summer grilling season? Think of something your guests will want to make the night after your wedding.
  • Choose something from your wedding menu: Talk to the caterer about using a recipe from one of your menu items. Or, provide the recipe for a special wedding cocktail served.
  • Celebrate family tradition: Is there a traditional food associated with the wedding celebration in your family?
  • You don’t have to stop at one recipe: If you can’t decide between two or three, use them all. Then, guests won’t all get the same thing.]
Thanks to for the great ideas.
