Recipe Genealogy Through Moms Baking
I started thinking about the many precious recipes that I have in my possession and then I started to realize that some of these recipes have been made for 100 years or longer! And they have all been passed down through Moms. What a priceless heirloom!
There are many family recipes that are too precious to share on this blog (sorry) - the only way to get these uber precious recipes is to marry into the family. However, there are plenty - I have shared many and will continue to share more in the future.
Below I have highlighted one recipe per "mom" in my family (including in-laws). To see the entire post/recipe please click on each title.
ENJOY & Happy Mother's Day!
My mom's special Christmas cookie recipe.
My maternal Grandmother's (known to me as "Omi") Apple Cake
Many of my Mimi's (French Canadian for Grandma - she is my paternal grandmother) recipes were lost because she passed away very young (and obviously before I was born).
My mother-in-law "Shirley" (and the reason for the spelling of surely in the Recipe title).

What a beautiful Heritage collection of family recipes and photos! What would we do without the precious scraps of paper that so many of us have lovingly tucked in our cookbooks from our Mothers and Grandmothers and beyond. Thank you for sharing with us, I would so love to post something similar one of these days on my blog. I have joined in on the #Great Blog Train with you all. Can't wait to meet some great people.ReplyDelete
I love this trip through your memories and the wonderful women in your life! Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
I love these "old family recipes". They remind me of the goodies that my great aunt, and aunts made for us.ReplyDelete
Love it! My mom and I are constantly nagging people to write down the family recipes, and that is basically how our site got started - now the family knows where to go to find the recipes.ReplyDelete
And I will be trying that cardamom bread this week!
I love the idea of putting the old photography along with the recipe. The german apple cake and the hot cross buns look delicious. This article will definitely be a great keepsake to come back to later in life.ReplyDelete
These recipes are wonderful, being passed down from each relative in your family. How wonderful to know there origin and have the pictures, too! So many of us don't have that. Thanks for sharing this great post at Together on Tuesdays :)ReplyDelete
What a beautiful tribute to all the "Mom's" in your life. Great recipes and such lovely pictures. I have some recipes from my grandmother and they are so precious to me. I share some of them, but not all.ReplyDelete
These all look wonderful, and what a great way to unite the past and present.ReplyDelete
What a treasure you have and I love the pictures!ReplyDelete
What a lovely idea to post the recipes and the photos of those who gave them to you. Thank you. Very sweet.ReplyDelete
Loved this post...you did a great job of taking us through the generations. Thanks for sharing with the Thursday Blog Hop!ReplyDelete
What a lovely way to keep their memories. Thanks for sharing this lovely post and all the wonderful recipes.ReplyDelete
Great recipes! I love all of the old photographs. So sweet!ReplyDelete
It is so important to have recipes written down. Because once the person that originally made the recipe is no longer here that recipe is gone forever.ReplyDelete
Beautiful collection of some delicious deserts and stuff. I like this postReplyDelete
These sound like some great recipes. I can't wait to try some of these. I am sure they are great. I don't blame you for keeping some for just family. God BlessReplyDelete
It's nice that you know who your ancestors are. So many don't these days. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Family recipes are the best! Always made with love and taste fabulous!ReplyDelete
I love family recipes that are passed down to generations.ReplyDelete
I had never thought about it before, but I guess recipes like that would be a family heirloom. I know my mom has a ton of old recipes. Thanks.ReplyDelete
My mother always made Hot Cross buns from my step dads german grandmother. They were so delicious no one could eat just one.ReplyDelete
I love all the photos you have collected and your family is very beautiful, I enjoy cooking and that is because of my mother, She taught me so much and I will always be blessed because of that..ReplyDelete
i love this. i wish my family had passed down more, we didnt really talk :(ReplyDelete
As a boy, I wasn't really taught many "family recipes", which I really regret.ReplyDelete
i rember the bread and cook my grand used to make not my mom grand had all thekdi cooking and they made every thing from scratchReplyDelete
I remember "helping" my grandma cook different recipes. Maybe that's where I got my love cooking.ReplyDelete

So nice to see some old time recipes!ReplyDelete
This is such a great idea and all these recipes sound amazing!ReplyDelete
