Our Favorite Family Recipes
A special gift for Kenny and Hailey on their wedding day, November 22, 2008
by Karen Maxwell
This is a compilation of favorite family recipes and photos from the family members of Kenny and Hailey. It is a wedding gift, so if you order this book prior to the wedding you are asked to please not leave this book out where it could be seen by either of them before the wedding. They know nothing about it. You can tell others about this book by telling them to search the bookstore for the books by Karen Maxwell.
I got the idea for these books from my boss. He went on three trips to Antarctica and compiled the pictures from the trips into a book for anyone who wanted one. I thought it was a great idea. I started compiling recipes when I was a little girl. Now, I didn't cook all the recipes I collected. One day I was trying to combine all my recipes and decide which ones we liked and didn't like and I just ended up with 3 notebooks of recipes. As I was doing this I realized I had some great recipes that I used to make! Hailey had asked for some that she had loved from her child hood. I thought it would be a great keepsake and wedding gift if I talked to each relative and asked them to contribute their favorite recipes to her book. It was a success although it was a lot of hard work. It was fun. When it came time for Shena to graduate, I decided to make another book for her to have to start her life with easy recipes that she could make. I hope they both liked them!
