A Collection of Recipes

i have been wanting to share this with you since my kitchen tea in September, my bridesmaids organised a printed book filled with a wonderful collection of recipes collected from all the women in my life. the recipes were either their favourites, ones they knew i’d love, or ones that had a special history (like the Buttermilk Sponge cake that Jessica and i have been baking since primary school, or any of the multitude of recipes my mom included). it was designed by Pauli and illustrated with sweet watercolours by Amy. you can faintly see the embossing on the cover – Miss Moss / Mrs Visser – a long running joke that i should change the name of the blog now that i’m married (i won’t!)

i thought perhaps a nice challenge for 2014 would be to try all the recipes in the book, and possibly share them with all of you. i can’t promise exceptional food photography or styling, but at least you’ll be able to try out my mom’s Malva Pudding, my mother in law’s buttermilk rusks (with coffee in the morning, just the best) or my grandmother’s fudge – which actually made an appearance at our wedding and was a sweet, sweet hit.

    This is SUCH a great gift! I write down all my favourite recipes in a handmade book which I will give to one of my children when they’re older (or born, rather).

    you are a lucky lady with a wonderfully loving support group. might you be able to share which platform your friends used to create the book? it is so beautifully bound xx

    • Miss Moss Monday 9 December, 2013 at 7:19 pm #

      the book would have been done in inDesign and then exported for printing.

    What a thoughtful and wonderful gift! So wonderful that I might just steal it for other people…. I’m not sure if that removes the thoughtful part though, ha! Looking forward to seeing some recipes x

    This is beautiful! Would you happen to know where they got this printed? This is the first time I’ve seen embossing on the cover for a custom book!

    • Miss Moss Tuesday 10 December, 2013 at 8:41 pm #

      it was printed at Orms i CT. i believe they do embossing on photobooks.

  30. Camille Wednesday 11 December, 2013 at 4:51 am #

    That has got the be the best gift, ever. Happy cooking!

  31. Thea Wednesday 11 December, 2013 at 10:51 pm #

    what a beautiful, thoughtful gift. it must have taken such a long time to put together. your bridesmaids are very special ladies indeed.

  32. casey Thursday 12 December, 2013 at 5:41 am #

    Absolutely stunning! So special and expertly assembled.

  33. Carissa Thursday 12 December, 2013 at 2:44 pm #

    Looking forward to the future posts inspired by your cookbook!

  34. Chuck Tuesday 7 January, 2014 at 4:22 pm #

    Aaaaaaaaw! This is so adorable/perfect. Keeping my fingers crossed that if I ever get married I get this instead of a tiara, a sequinned sash and a hangover from my lady friends. Just such a lovely idea and beautifully executed.

  35. Eva Sunday 4 May, 2014 at 11:57 am #

    What a fantastic gift! It must have been so much work, how great to have such sweet friends. It looks amazing.

  36. Betty Jablonski Sunday 4 May, 2014 at 10:31 pm #

    So thoughtful and lovingly given. A treasure to have and to ‘hold’. I hope they left some empty pages so that you can add your own very special recipes to bestow upon someone you love in the future.

  37. Grant Monday 5 May, 2014 at 2:49 am #

    Quite simply an exquisite idea from your friends whom are clearly special. Thank you for sharing such a stylish compendium

  38. Sarah O. Tuesday 6 May, 2014 at 11:13 pm #

    I love this idea- can you tell me where I can have a book like this made?

  39. Nicky Cahill Monday 12 May, 2014 at 1:23 pm #

    What a delightful gift, truly beautiful.

    I have just stumbled upon your website, it too is beautiful.
