Today is the day most of us in the United States will sit down to give thanks and celebrate food. Repeatedly. In the spirit of second helpings, here’s a classic Blurberati Blog post about a recipe book that celebrates the wonder and beauty of family cooking:

‘Tis the season of eating and for those of us in the U.S., today is the day we kick it off with a huge Thanksgiving feast. In honor of that and of all the festive feasts to come, we thought we’d focus on recipe books. This one caught our eye and captured our appetite for creativity and fun. In fact, in reading through this wonderful recipe collection, we felt like we got to know – and like – the whole Morrisette family.

The story starts with the great cover image of Grandpa’s cast-iron skillet, and ends with Grandma’s vintage McCoy Apple cookie jar on the back. In between are yummy recipes and well-told (funny!) family stories (check out Christian’s Peace Corps Chocolate Chip Cookies, pg. 70).

With a collaborative book like this, it can be a challenge to find photos for every single recipe. We appreciate the creative mix of family photos old and new, shots of recipes made, and simple images of, say, green apples for an apple pie recipe. They help you get a sense of both the food and this family’s deep connections and standout personalities. And it all made us wonder: What are they eating today?

Happy feasting from the Blurberati!

  1. What kind of binding and paper, and number of pages, are best for a cookbook to lay flat?

    Thanks for encouraging family cookbooks; this Morrisette book is a wonderful and well-done treasure for their family.

  2. Hey Kim, Thanks for the response! In my experience, either of Landscape formats works the best. It’s not truly lay-flat, but it does open rather nicely. Paper type is up to you, but Premium Lustre or Premium Matte is a nice choice. For cover, I’d recommend ImageWrap. It’s a nice look for cookbook and is pretty durable too.
