Are big, beautiful recipe books now kitchen dinosaurs, sadly replaced by the immediacy at our fingertips? Retrieving a recipe on the internet is convenient. However, we lose the connection to our past that a book keeps safe within its pages. From the dusting of old flour left on pages, to Grandma’s faded handwritten note in the margins (when she discovered the oven temperature was a bit too high), these notations mark especially fond favorites. For example, the perfect substitution for the cheesy potatoes that were “the hit of the family reunion” in 1995. Recipe websites cannot offer these enduring reminders.
Family recipes often used for holiday entertaining or preserving family traditions hold strong meaning. Some of our fondest memories occur in the kitchen, making it worthy of the suitable “heart of the home” description.
Recipes are topography, outlining the structure and features of a particular plan. In this post, we will outline the Recipe for a New Kitchen Renovation.
A headnote offers a short paragraph that acts as an introduction, the opportunity to share where it came from or why it is important, example; “Mom got this recipe from her college roommates Mom.” Retelling the story of the Thanksgiving she spent with them, in snowy Minnesota. Brrrrr! This headnote could read; When our family had outgrown our dated kitchen, we were ready to expand the footprint of this heavily used room in our house. Our two grown children and their families visit often, and we dreamed of enough space to have everyone gathered in the kitchen while preparing meals. We now enjoy a large peninsula with seating for all, plenty of storage, and improved counter space. We also added a double oven and walk-in pantry for better appliance & bulk food storage. Bon Appetit!
