These days with electronic means of communication and organization paper and its peaceful simplicity often gets left behind. I have a number of recipe boxes on my pantry shelf. The recipes inside (and the recipe boxes themselves) have been passed down to me from grandmothers and great-grandmothers, meaning that these recipes have historical and sentimental value. I could never get rid of them. However, when I need a recipe I am inclined to reach for a shiny new cook book, or the internet for inspiration.
Also, I had a fantastic week/weekend away, and I am just sifting through photos to share the experience. In the meantime you should sign up for Michelle's giveaway!
