I don’t know about y’all, but everyone in my family has always gathered around the kitchen. Whether it’s evenings at home or holidays when everyone comes together, there’s just something about food that brings people together. It doesn’t hurt that it’s delicious, of course! Growing up in the south has allowed me to eat some pretty amazing food and it’s come from some pretty amazing women, too.

Now that I’m an adult and have a family of my own, I have a whole new respect for my mom, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers. I now know how much love is poured into cooking through the time and preparation that go into each meal. These ladies are and have been so precious to me and I cherish their recipes that have been handed down. I have so many memories of cooking in the kitchen with them, so to be able to cook the same meals in my home means a lot.
I’ve always kept handwritten recipes and pull them out often. I found these adorable recipe cards from Basic Invite and I can print from home, which is super convenient! I love that there’s a space where I can include the special person who passed it along. I’ve got a lot of family recipes, so I really enjoy having them on display in my kitchen. This recipe box from Lilly Bella Boutique is classic and ties into my kitchen perfectly. It’s also a great reminder for me to flip through this before losing myself in Pinterest looking for meal options.
I’m looking forward to sharing more of these recipes with y’all over the next few months. Many of which are perfect for the upcoming holidays! I could eat my weight in these casseroles, bread, candy, cakes, pies, and more! If there’s anything I know about these southern women I grew up with, it’s that they know how to cook!
Basic Invite is a great place for recipe cards, but it also has a huge variety of invitations, announcements, and more. They are also one of the few websites that allow customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Another thing that is pretty incredible is that they offer the ability to order a printed sample of the actual invitation. This ensures that you love it before you place an order for hundreds of invites. That’s definitely something I would’ve appreciated when ordering for my wedding.
Be sure to check out their website because they’re offering 15% off of everything right now with code 15FF52. It’s perfect timing with the holiday season just around the corner. Have a great weekend, y’all!
