As a young mother, I was always interested in discovering & making traditional family recipes. I loved so many of the recipes the women of our family made. So much of Christmas involves food and dishes passed down from mother to daughter. This Christmas I want to encourage you to share with the young women & men, of your family, the family, recipes that carry forward the traditions of Christmas.

GRAP YOUR FREE CHRISTMAS RECIPE CARDS
Provide your best email address and after you confirm you will have your copy of the 3 designs. You will also be the first to know of any new recipes or freebies.
To help you involve the young people in your family on Christmas, I have designed three different themed recipe cards so you can email them to family members before they arrive. The recipe cards are in a PDF file so you can easily email them to Family 👨👩👧👧 members that are going to be sharing Christmas with you this year.
HOW TO USE SHARING CHRISTMAS RECIPE CARDS
Encourage them to bring their favorite Christmas recipes from grandma or your great aunt that they want to share with each other and with the younger members of your family. I asked them to write down their favorite recipes and make several copies to bring with them before they arrive.
Print off some black recipe cards and cut them out on heavier card stock. Have them in your kitchen so if family or guests see a recipe you are making and ask you how you make that dish, you can easily jot down the recipe for them to take home.
Every family gathering I attended I always end up in the kitchen with the cook and notebook and pen. I follow the cook around the kitchen jotting down their tips and secrets. Everyone is always willing to share their family traditions and feels honored that you asked.
At our church potlucks, we always have some 3 x 5 cards for this specific purpose. This year I am going to print off my festive Christmas recipe card to take along. We have treasured older women of our congregation that have the best recipes that I want to make sure I can pass along. I want to discover new recipes that stand the test of time.
I know you will find many ways to share your recipes using the Free Free Christmas Recipe Cards to Share Your Family Traditions.
