The holidays are coming up and this is a great time to celebrate the family recipe. We all have special recipes that we bring out once a year. They remind us of holidays gone by and family members that may no longer be with us. Digging into a family recipe can be just like stepping into a time machine. Heirloom recipes have powerful magic like that.
Make this year the year that you document cooking with your family. Pull out your camera (or phone) and take some photos or videos in the kitchen together. There’s something priceless about memories in the kitchen, and yet we often forget to document them.
