Does anyone still use a recipe box? I do - in fact I have two and both are packed full to overflowing!
There's something about a handwritten recipe that's special. These nuggets can transport me back in time to the moment/occasion/person that gave it to me.
Last year I attended a bridal shower for my nephew's soon-to-be bride. All of the guests were asked to bring their favorite recipe, handwritten on a recipe card, to give to the bride. I thought, how wonderful - this is what my guests were asked to bring to my bridal shower 30+ years ago. I still have those recipes and cherish each one. It's nice to know that there are some traditions that can stand the test of time despite the ease of Pinterest.
So as the holidays approach, you might be looking through your recipes too. I'd like to share one with you. I've been making this recipe for the past eight or so years and it will be making a trip around our dinner table again this Thanksgiving,
Slow Cooker Creamed Corn
