Cookbooks are such a wonderful heirloom gift, and one I received this past holiday!

On one hand, a great way to be able to pass on the tradition of cooking to others. And on the other hand, a wonderful gift that will be used, kept and passed down through the generations. A special handwritten note on the inside cover is an extra special treat to be cherished down the road.

img_1192I received the oh-so-fantastic Martha Stewart Cooking School book from Mom. Unlike most cookbooks that are simply filled with recipes, Martha’s book is filled with lessons & photos on HOW to cook – more techniques and lessons. You’ll find such things as how to clarify butter, the difference between chopping, mincing, dicing & slicing and more.  Love it. Get it.

And of course, thought I would share my favorite “heirloom” cookbook that we used during the holidays to make Christmas cookies. Betty Crocker’s Cooky Book is just a wonderful treat – with fabulous recipes and charming little illustrations. A favorite in our family!

I wanted to take a moment to share a few special things from my family this holiday season, as they related to “preserves” the blog.

You will remember the post on Signature Gift Wrapping and I wanted to share the two wonderful wrapping styles my Mom (green w/ burlap) & my Sister (kraft w/ berries) used this year for all their presents! What a treat!

And of course, a very special heirloom gift from me this year was an IceMilk Apron for everyone! You can see below a quick family shot, and a special treat to have my Sisters new (soon-to-be) “H” monogrammed initial. I accompanied each apron with a special mini photobook I put together that included family recipes and old black & white family photos from Grandma’s collection. And, the aprons came in handy as we cooked for days & days!
