DIY cook book. Lauren recommends this as a mothers day gift but wouldn't it be way more fun to do this together with your mom! The two of you can go through all of your favorite recipes as a kid.
Recipe for Organization Have a pile of cookbooks gathering dust? Scan and print the one or two recipes you use the most often, then donate the book. Same goes for recipes in magazines. Tear out the relevant pages, then recycle the rest. Put the pages into clear plastic pockets in a three-ring binder. You've just made yourself a customized cookbook with plenty of room to grow.
