I did something similar to that, Mikki, when our youngest son got married. I handcopied 100 of his favorite recipes that I served as he was growing up. I put each recipe in a protective clear plastic sleeve and put together a recipe file with the appropriate dividers. I made notations on the recipes where they came from, if I knew it, and other remembrances about the recipes.
