Keepsake Kitchen Diary – the perfect gift!
What memories do you have of your Mom or Grandma? Do you have wonderful memories of your Grandma or Mom sharing family memories and favorites with you? Showing you their little secrets?
Those are the type of memories I want to instill in my daughters. We love baking and creating in our kitchen! The memories that come along with it are memories that will last forever!
I don’t have many memories of my Mom being in the kitchen as she worked full-time. However, I have many memories of one of my Grandma’s! I can still see her at the stove cooking! She didn’t need a recipe book! She made everything from scratch and it was so good! Her pies were mouthwatering! Her food delicious and her stories are forever engrained my heart and mind!
When I heard about Lily & Val’s Keepsake Kitchen Diary, I knew this was something we needed to have!
Lily & Val’s Keepsake Kitchen Diary™ is the perfect combination of memories and recipes in one place! There really is no other cookbook like it. The company has combined a recipe keeper with a journal to record the precious memories, moments, and stories associated with food. In addition to being functional, the book is beautifully and thoughtfully designed. http://www.
The Keepsake Kitchen Diary retails for $45.99 and is broken down into six sections – starters, soups/salads, main courses, side dishes, desserts and miscellaneous. Each section begins with fanciful drawings by Val McKeehan, cooking tips ranging from a roasting guide to measuring, and room for over 30 important recipes, photos and personal reflections.
Inspired by Lily & Val co-founder Valerie McKeehan’s own family food memories of one afternoon when Val and her mother were searching through her grandmother’s tattered handwritten recipe notebook each page contained a flood of memories recounted by her mother through stories about each dish. Her mission was clear: Create a DIY cookbook with room for special recipes and a journal to record the memories attached to them.
The Keepsake Kitchen Diary™ includes these unique features:
- Thoughtful organization with room for up to 200 recipes
- Divided into 6 sections: starters, soups/salads, main courses, side dishes, desserts and miscellaneous
- Pockets included for storing photos and special tokens
- 12 tear-out recipe cards to share
- Beautiful hand-drawn illustrations
- Durable binding and coated covers to protect from light spills
This is really the perfect gift for Mother’s Day or any occasion. My oldest is learning to cook so we are using the diary together. When we find a new recipe that the family loves, that she helped prepare, we are recording it, along with the memories.
I’m really hoping that my oldest will past this on to her children and they can continue to share in the memories that their Grandma and Mom shared.
Here is a really neat video on families sharing their testimonials about the diary!
This Keepsake Kitchen Diary makes a great gift for family and friends that want to pass recipes and traditions down to the next generation. Lily & Val also has a large selection of handmade greeting cards, gifts and is the premier chalk art brand responsible for the ever-growing trend of chalkboard prints!
This would be a terrific gift for Easter, Mother’s Day, an upcoming birthday or just because!!
