The Timeless Family Food Journal is a conceptual recipe book intended to be given to children from someone special. There is place to paste a photo of the child on the front cover. The book not only contains recipes for all ages and stages of life, but nutritional information and advice, tips and tricks for the kitchen, and family life and pictures and notes. Throughout the journal there is space to paste photos of your child’s stages. For example My first Solids Meal and Dad and I Cooking Together; also little notes such as Mom’s favourite Christmas recipe, a Painting of my Family and My Handprint, etc. At the end of each chapter there is space to write in your own recipes and notes.
But the book contains much more than just food recipes. There are recipes to make home-made paint, soaps, fizzy sherbet, edible Christmas gifts and decorations, cooked play dough, and much more.
