My whole goal of packing up my Mom’s recipes and bringing them back with me on my last trip down to my hometown was to go through them and find the ones that she used to prepare when I was growing up and put together some sort of cookbook for my kids and siblings.

I wanted to preserve these delicious memories somehow, someway so that I could share a little piece of my childhood with those I love.

Now that I have all those little notecards and newspaper clippings in my possession, I feel a little overwhelmed and unsure where to start.

Recipes 3

I mean, there are literally hundreds of recipes to go through!

And while I could have taken all of her cookbooks, I held myself back to just those that tugged at my heartstrings the most, 2 of which are vintage and used the most by her.


Can you see all the love that they have had?

Now here is the million dollar question that I’m hoping you all can help me with: does anybody know of some software that is available for me to organize this mess collection into some sort of cookbook?  I’ve looked at Shutterfly but I’m hoping that there are other options out there that will allow me creative reign without busting my wallet.

I know you guys are smarter than me when it comes to this stuff, so please, please, pleeeease lend me a hand here.

Alrighty, now that I’ve done the necessary groveling, it’s time to get cooking!
