Merry Christmas to me! My boyfriend proposed to me Christmas night and now I’m engaged! So despite all of the usual bride-to-be, “I’m planning a wedding” hoopla, something tells me I’ve got some Secret Ingredients Cookbooks coming my way.
My future mother-in-law has already told me that she plans on dubbing me “project manager” to create a Keepsake Cookbook for our upcoming family reunion this summer. I can only imagine all of the great recipes that will be in that book; from my Sweet Potato Cheesecake that was a hit again this past Christmas, to my mother’s Sweet Potato Pie, my future mother-in-laws recipe for Pound Cake, and my future father-in-law’s awesome Gumbo recipe just to name a few.
It will be a great Keepsake Cookbook for the family reunion, but I’m sure it’ll be an even more impressive Heirloom Cookbook as a wedding gift. That most incredible recipe collection, paired with photographs of both my fiancé’s and my family will truly be a treasured gift.
In the meantime, I’ll be sure to keep you all posted on my wild ride from fiancé to bride.
That’s it for me, until next time…
