Watch our Julia Childs...

because here we come!

Chris and I, in preparation for meeting our Bio-mom on Tuesday of next week, are putting together a recipe book for her. At our very first meeting, she told us that during the holidays she spends most of her time in the kitchen with her family baking. We told her that we too enjoy our projects in the kitchen (though, Chris more than me) and we decided to collect our favorite recipes and trade them.

Being that I'm on some super-gay crafty mission, I've decided to collect them and create a digital scrapbook for her. Some of the recipes I've included are Chris' Carrot Cake, meat stuffing (Jeff's favorite), pumpkin spice rolls, peanut brittle, pecan pralines, chicken marabella, pumpkin pie, bananas foster, and a few others. Below you can see a sample of the pages I created for her.

Great idea,
You should introduce the birth mom to your blog, we would love to "meet" her.

These look great! You should post all the recipes on your blog! There are lots of sites that have monthly challenges for exchanging scrapped recipes. Some even allow you to exchange the full-size layouts so you can print them for your own usage/cookbooks.
