Southern Keepsakes and Traditions Through Food

Southern Keepsakes and Traditions Through Food 3

We live for a couple of things in the south, tradition, food and football. The last one is not at the top of my list but I love traditions and southern food. So many of us have family recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation and we want to keep those in our family and in a stylish organized way. One way to do that is through a southern keepsake diary. I have started using  one by Lily & Val and I love it!

It makes me so happy knowing that I will pass down what I learned from my mother to future generations. Not mention it looks great just as a piece of home decor for your kitchen. These make great gifts for new moms or newlyweds and is a perfect way to encourage your friends to continue their family traditions. If you are like me, get your mom involved in adding her recipes, it is a great Mother’s Day gift that will last for years.  Learn a little bit more about Lily & Val today and make sure to get a copy!

“My fondest memories focus around the table,” says Val McKeehan, “the anecdotes and recipes of those times are all crucial, meaningful story-telling occasions that should be celebrated, recorded, passed down and cherished. In this digital era, I wanted to make something lasting, highly personable and different, much like the recipes handed down from which many of those stories came.”

Lily & Val, the premier creator of whimsical, handcrafted chalk art, launches The Keepsake Kitchen Diary, the first cookbook to marry recipes with personal memoirs.  Inspired by Lily & Val co-founder Valerie McKeehan’s own family food memories, each page provides an opportunity to record precious recipes, as well as anecdotes about the dish – from a fire in the oven where there was no turkey for dinner, to an elegant anniversary meal prepared every year as a tradition to Grandma’s secret recipe for the perfect chocolate chip cookie.
