Thought for Food

Pass good taste down through the generations with this combination recipe book and journal. Whether you remember your first bite of grandma's lemon meringue or luxuriate in the memory of baking a cake with a loved one on a snowy day, the Kitchen Keepsake Diary provides space for about 200 of your favorite family recipes and a full journal page for each.

Valerie McKeehan came up with the idea after she and her mother found themselves leafing through her grandmother's notebook of handwritten recipes—and being flooded with emotion. After laughing and crying while sharing their memories of the recipes, Valerie knew she wanted to create a cookbook where family stories would never be lost: They were just as essential as the recipes themselves. Her 400-page self-illustrated book contains six sections—Starters, Soups/Salads, Main Courses, Side Dishes, Desserts, and Miscellaneous—two pockets, 12 tear-out cards, and helpful guides and references so even the least skilled cook in the family can try their hand.

Newly wed and drawing from a love of visual storytelling honed through an advertising career, Valerie McKeehan transformed an old picture frame into a “McKeehan’s Café” chalkboard for her kitchen. Drawn to chalkboard art’s simplicity and the nostalgia it inspires, Valerie now preserves an art form that was once considered temporary, handcrafting chalk art prints that are whimsical, authentic, and completely one-of-a-kind.
