Thought for Food
Pass good taste down through the generations with this combination recipe book and journal.

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.
