The Best Kind of Mother’s Day Gift…
…is a gift hand-made by her baby. And that’s you!
We all know that our Moms keep everything we make. In their jewelry boxes are their diamonds and pearls and the macaroni necklace we all made special, just for them, in kindergarten. But now that we’re older, we’ve gotta up our game!
I don’t know about you, but my Mamala is a great cook, and I love to learn her recipes. Holidays in her house are always full of way more food than anyone could possibly eat. I mean, we’re talkin’ enough grub to feed a small country, mkay? Needless to say, there is a mountain of recipes to sift through. And as I have started to host several of the holidays at my own home, I have added quite a few recipes to that mountain.
So I got to thinking that it would be nice to compile all of those recipes into a super special, hand-made, one-of-a-kind, incredibly girly, not to mention shabby chic little recipe box. Perfect to go with my Mamala’s décor and add a little something special for the kitchen that looks a little better than that macaroni necklace.
And I love it.
It’s really just a matter of finding a pre-made recipe box at your local craft store and covering it with whatever goodies you like, or that you think will match perfectly with the décor surrounding it. I happen to looooooove the Merryweather Collection from K&Company and knew that it would be the perfect match for my Mamala. I’ve included some tabbed dividers and recipe card templates for you to print out to organize your box as well, so you can stuff that little lady full of your favorite recipes!
Now if I could just figure out how 31 Flavors makes their peanut butter chocolate ice cream so dang good! THAT would definitely make its way into the box!
Now get to work and have fun! You can find the shopping list and instructions (here).
Happy Mother’s Day, Mamala! Loooooove you!!
