Family Recipe Books

« Back to Family, Photo Book Ideas

Every holiday season families get together with friends and loved ones to make merry through food and drink. Older family members prepare dishes they know leave an impression in the hearts and bellies of their loved ones, while the younger generations either incorporate the latest food trend into their own nourishing contribution or attempt to take the reins on traditional recipes that have been in the family for decades. As years go by, the desire to stay close to these food traditions year after year gets stronger. As grandchildren enter the picture, so does the search for ways to pass down family recipes, and memories of holiday get-togethers.

Shutterfly fan Sara T sent us this book she created to preserve her family’s heritage that has always been full of food, fun and family. Recipes at her family gatherings have been passed down four generations and the wonderful Greek meals, full of rich colors, flavors and aromas that surrounded Sara as a child have been memorialized in  this book.  This book was made with Shutterfly’s Favorite Recipe design style.

more about Gretchen S

My name is Gretchen and I am a “Shutterfly” Monday through Friday, but when I am not working with our fantastic team here, I am playing in the streets of San Francisco, traveling, or spending time with my friends and family. I am a novice photographer (or as I like to say “photographer in training”) and love taking pictures of everything from fun times with friends at home to beautiful locations across the world. I love Shutterfly because I can find easy ways to do creative things with my photos.
