Recipe by Nancy Sneed

Here's where your imagination as a cook and homemaker will be at it's best. Feel free to make any changes you'd like and add your own favorite recipes. If this is a gift for a family member it would really be special to include a homemade cookbook with family favorites. Have fun making it individualized.

My aunt did this for my sister's wedding years ago and called it a 'grubstake' shower. (My sister had quite a few showers, so got tons of gifts... my aunt thought it would be helpful to help her stock her first kitchen/ pantry!) The invitations were done on folded, small brown paper bags... and she got things like spices, pizza mix/ pizza pans, etc. Plus favorite recipes from everyone! It was terrific and practical and fun! Nice, too, for a bride who already has Everything!


  1. Also include: bucket or dishpan, toothpick, plastic wrap, measuring cups, rubber gloves, pot holder, kitchen towels, hand written recipes for basics: biscuits, white sauce, meat loaf, apple pie Wrap the bucket or dishpan in colored cellophane.
  2. When the other gifts are put away, the bride will still be appreciating this gift collection.
