I use a red pen to look like the margin of the paper.
Then I went through tons of family recipes. I know how much my grandson loves apples so I went with an Apple Crisp recipe of my moms.
Using your own handwriting when making this will be even better for the keepsake. I still love looking at my Nana’s handwriting.
Use dark and clear wax to create an aged and soiled recipe look.
The dark wax tones down the writing and ages the sides.
I feel like it looks authentic. Like a loved recipe that was used many many times. I hope it will add to another family memory. This memory recipe tray can be used all year long but when the holiday comes around it will tell the story of the year we gathered and celebrated.
The memories of our great- grandparents, grandparents and parents.
It is a recipe to pass down to generations.
When it is baked and we sit down to eat I hope a little red head will love it and when years pass I hope he will look back to this holiday memory.
I think I need to make more. I think each one of our family members would enjoy having a Memory Recipe Tray.
Hope you make wonderful memories this holiday season.
