    added tip - scan these and save a backup somewhere in case the unthinkable happens. My son says, "If it doesn't exist in at least 2 places, it doesn't exist." Most genealogist already think of this for their records, but it is equally important for those recipes written in that special loved one's own handwriting!

Make handwritten family recipe card into ornaments - scan and print, send with a homemade batch or a baking dish/tool.
