Today's recipes come in all shapes and sizes, from computer printouts to index cards. Update the old recipe box with modern silver lunchboxes. Use magnetic labels to separate the main dishes from the desserts, then stash your favorite recipes inside.
Love to cook? Instead of writing down their words of wisdom and congratulations, have friends and family write down their favorite recipe and put it in a recipe box. To keep the cards organized, use labels to separate appetizers, main courses, beverages and desserts.
Mints come in an array of leaf sizes, colors and flavors. You can easily find a mint that suits your taste or fills the right spot in your garden design or recipe box. Some common mint varieties include: ‘Kentucky Colonel’ spearmint (the go-to mint for juleps and mojitos), ginger mint (gold-streaked leaves taste great in teas), pineapple mint (variegated green and white leaves, fruity flavor), ‘Hillary’s Sweet Lemon’ mint (a cross between apple and lime mint) and apple mint (large fuzzy leaves on tall plants).
Use part of the gift for gift wrap by tying on a vintage Christmas cookie cutter with gold ribbon to the gift box. Keep the rest of the gift on theme by giving a cookie recipe book, some fun sprinkles and a rolling pin.
