Every year about this time, I gather up all the old recipe cards, handwritten recipes and clipped recipes that I’ve bought at estate and yards sales throughout the year. Sometimes I find them in old recipe boxes. Other times I find them shoved into plastic bags by the estate sale professionals and priced to sell. I sort and bag them with a mixture of handwritten and clipped recipes and make them available at our Open House. The “grab bags” make fun stocking stuffers and I always sell out.
Along with the recipes and recipe boxes this year, I’ve created a few cookbook/recipe card holders from cheese graters. I start with a flat grater and some miscellaneous junk….
And fashion a one-of-a-kind kitchen tool…..
