There are certain things in this world that make me very happy, and among them are recipes that have meaning or stories behind them. Knowing this, my best friend decided to skip the wishing well
for my bridal shower
and instead included recipe cards with the invitations, simply asking guests to add to my collection.
Out of all the gifts I received -- and I received many -- these recipes take the cake. They were not only cute (Etsy
), but they fit perfectly in my wooden recipe box.
Two weeks later, after all the thank-you notes had been mailed, I finally got around to really reading through the recipes. It was fun to see that the people who knew me the best really took the time to write down something they knew I would love. Others who don't love to cook got creative and still managed to please my palate!
Find out some of my favorite recipes and clever ideas after the jump -- and feel free to add to my collection by sharing a recipe with me in the comments section.
