My dad loved to cook and I knew he kept every recipe on my parent's home computer, so for Christmas I wanted to surprise my mom and sister with a cookbook with all of my dad's recipes. While going through them, I found many had been passed down for generations and new ones too. So, I decided to name the book Memories Around the Table. The front and back cover is a huge picture of my dad's entire extended family on his mother's side. (Right, Aunt Angie?) My dad was just a baby in this picture and you can barely see him. He is behind the woman in the dark shirt on the front row (my grandmother) on his dad's shoulder.
This is the cover picture in its entirety. I had it wrap around the book to be the front and back cover.
You can customize the book to be hard bound or spiral (I chose spiral because it would get here before Christmas) and you can include up to 100 pages of content.
I think this would make an awesome gift for any cook in your life!
