Hello. My name is Rachel, and I love to write, create and share. This blog is an extension of my site, Mother's Mementos, which I update regularly on a variety of topics (mainly faith, family, and food). I created Mother's Recipe Mementos as a place to record recipes I'd like to pass down to my children and share with friends and loved ones.
I was never much of a cook prior to getting married and just started finding my way around the kitchen once I became a mother. In a former life, I probably would've been voted "Least Likely to be a Homemaker". But once I had a child, maternal instincts kicked into high gear and next thing I knew I was whipping up cupcakes and baking cookies by the batches. I actually find baking quite therapeutic, and my husband also finds great therapy in testing out the finished products!
All the photographs on this site are taken by me. I've developed a recent passion for food photography and am learning how to be creative in presenting mouth-watering photos. I use a digital SLR Nikon D80 with a 50mm 1.8 lens. We've had this camera since my firstborn arrived in 2008, but it was always my husband's baby. I had no interest in photography until I decided to take some pretty pictures of my baked goods. Then I was hooked.
Thank you for joining me on this journey and being part of my keepsake to my sons. And for those who are new here, welcome! Leave a comment or you can write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to hear from you.
