Chef An-ette Recipe box for MIL AnnetteDecember 15, 2006 at 4:15 pm | Posted in Family | 6 Comments
Don’t you love finding the perfect gift for someone? It almost makes up for all the rushing around and agonizing you do over the holidays.
At our family Thanksgiving party, Cousin Elli showed me my husband’s grandma’s recipe box: the cutest little set of hollow metal “cookbooks” that held recipe cards. The brand name printed on them was “Chef An-ette,” and my mother-in-law’s name is Annette. Hm, doesn’t take a genius to figure out that she’d probably love to have something like that to remind her of her mom. With three daughters and lots of granddaughters, Grandma’s items are spread out far and wide among lots of family members.
Each “book” holds different types of recipes…
…and tilts out out to allow access to the cards. The cutest thing, no?
I found it on eBay, and it’s in remarkable condition for its age. And I got it for a song, which makes me love it all the more. I just know she’ll love it.
