Great Idea! Framed Recipes!

I recently saw this idea in a magazine.

Take your favorite family recipes and frame them, hanging them in your kitchen...and when you need them , they are close at hand. I love the idea of framing a (favorite) recipe that was handwritten by someone special.

Here are mine:

This is my mothers Tuscan Potato Salad. I HATE mayo and this has zero. I love the differnt taste of this version.

Here is a recipe that Grandma Peg used to eat as a child. She is from a proud from an Irish family. Peg's mother fed soda bread to her and her brothers and sisters as an after school treat with a cup of milk. Peg typed this out on her personal (old time) typewriter years ago and I saved it.

This is a recipe from Big Daddy's paternal grandmother. I think the little notation she made on it about "Leigh" is funny!
"If Leigh's gets to them, they only last a day! Ha!"
It's true!

Thanks for the sweet comment about my mom. I will tell her you think she looks young! She will love that!

This is so brilliant! My (failed) summer goal was to redo the kitchen and I'm going to do something this week. This has motivated me.

Great idea for recipes!

Speaking of which, don't forget to turn some in for the HIS 5th grade cookbook fundraiser.

I love this idea and I think I might just do this for the lake house! I will take my dad's famous hush puppy recipe and frame it in the kitchen! That would be cool for a lake house idea! Also, maybe find some corn meal fish fry batter! Toooooooooo cool!!!!
