Why Handwritten Recipes are so Special

The other day I decided to dive into my little wooden recipe box in hopes of finding something I could make for dinner.  I discovered some treasured handwritten recipes.  Recipes from friends, church ladies, family members, and even my husband…from years ago. Many of these recipes were given to me at my wedding shower.  This wooden box contains meals that have been made by people I love, who took the time to share them with me.  And, how wonderful it will be to pass these family-loved meals down to my children and grandchildren someday.   

I love that they are handwritten too.  It is so easy to click and print these days, but taking the time to share a handwritten favorite dish will bless someone. I know it has blessed me!  Seeing something handwritten makes it more personal.

I’ve put together a free download below in 4 different designs  (3 x 5 and 4 x 6 format).  Feel free to handwrite a special meal of yours and give to a friend, family member, neighbor or even a new mom.  How nice it would be to actually make that recipe for them too!   

p.s. I did find a great recipe that night…a Zucchini Skillet from my mother-in-law.  I will share that recipe soon!
