“My mom cooks the best…!”
Almost everyone claims his or her mother is the best cook out there. We love our mother’s cooking, so why not make sure to keep these old (or new) family recipes preserved? Here are some creative ways to store your family recipes as well as get your loved ones back in the kitchen!
- Recipe book. Do you have old family recipes that are feeling the wear and tear and being passed down from generation to generation? Try laminating or scanning the recipes onto your computer to preserve them. Then put them in a cookbook for your mother!
- Write them down. Perhaps your mother has a few recipes that she knows by heart and are not written down. The next time she is cooking, ask permission to write down the ingredients and directions.
- Get cooking! The best way to remember
recipes is by cooking. Join your mother in the kitchen next time she is baking! This is a great way to bond and create memories as well.
Once you have mastered all of the traditional family favorites, you might be on the lookout for some new dishes to add to the lineup. Try out a local cooking class and discover some new recipes! Many Twin Cities community education programs offer a variety of cooking classes. For example, Minneapolis community education offers classes including BBQ classics, light summer cooking, spring time brunch and southern comfort food. Check out your community education program and sign up for a class to take with your client or family!
