The Family Cookbook – Mother’s Day Gift Guide

I know, I know – it doesn’t sound terribly exciting.
But actually, I LOVE this book. Really very much a lot.

Like most people I have a collection of recipe books (and like most people I always seem to fall back on the same three), but my most-used recipe collection is  a lever arch folder. In it I have loosely-organised sections (dinners, baking & Christmas pretty much covers it), and I keep in there the recipes I cut from magazines, the ones I print from web sites (God Bless BBC Good Food), those I’ve begged friends for, those I’ve printed with the intention of trying one day, those I’ve created and those that have been passed down to me. Having them in a folder means I can scrawl my own notes on them (I always note how many it actually served, what everyone though, any changes I made, and what I’d do differently next time), and they’re always to hand.

Inevitably, though, over the years I’ve collected a large file and have to rummage for the ones I use most often – the best of them seem to have migrated to their own section nearest the front.
How much better to have the ‘good’ ones stored safely in it’s own perfect cookbook?

I just love this idea so much – particular the ability to add photos of how it turned out, with dates and notes. It’s a memory book and a recipe book all rolled into one.
And I think it’s a perfect Mother’s Day Gift, too – not only will your Mum love it, but she’ll also create a recipe archive which can be handed down for generations.

The Letteroom Family Cookbook is beautifully bound, has space for over 80 recipes, and can be yours for just under £25.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
