justin moved out of the house last year. but recently he and his girlfriend jessica got an apartment together. when girl-child moved out i made her a cookbook scrapbook of some of her favorite recipes. justin requested the same. but he said, "go ahead and put some gross stuff in it too, since it's not just for me."
so justin and jessica, here is your cookbook with gross stuff included.
i bought this paper pack a few months ago, not having a clue what i was going to do with it. i was worried it was too girlie for this project but since justin now has his own girlie, i think it's perfect!
thought handwriting each recipe was a nice touch too.

I love to find my mom's old recipes because they are in her handwriting (she's been gone a long time(not trying to be morbid here) but it kind of lifts my heart to see her handwriting. Justin is lucky, especially with a mom who is a kick-ass chef (mmmm, remembering those waffles). Such a thoughtfull mom (human) you are Ms Melly. Always, robin

That is a fabulous idea. I have shared lots of recipes with the dogs - but just made copies :) g
