My favorite recipes

A beautiful recipe book by Julie Tucker-Wolek!

"Nowadays you can find pretty much any recipe you want on the internet.  Pretty much type in what you want to eat into Google, and there is a recipe for it :) And now with Pinterest, you can even "pin" your faves that you want to try :)  But there are several recipes that my Mom has passed onto me that aren't on the internet, because they came from her (and my Grandma too!) that are family favorites that I want to make sure I keep forever! They are simple recipes, but my family loves them, and I had them all written down on several random cards, and I was afraid I might someday misplace them, so I wanted to put them all in one book. Melissa Frances' mini envelope book was a PERFECT choice for my recipe book!" ~~Julie 
"I added mini clothes pins to each envelope so when I wanted to cook or bake one of my recipes, I could easily clip the recipe card to the backside of the envelope page to see it while I am cooking!"

OMG - I love this! I have collected recipes from Grandparents, my parents and my husband's parents to create keepsakes for my daughter and son (yes him too), just didn't know what I wanted to do or how! Thank you for the inspiration!

Thanks ladies for the love! I had so much fun putting this together! The Melissa Frances envelope mini was a perfect choice to keep my cards in, I can add more without having to worry about needing more space! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Those mini clothes pins are adorable. I recently ran across this made in America clothespins challenge page. They have some great pictures of all types of clothespins and reference a group in Israel that is collecting unique pins and clips from around the world it is very cool.
