About Mother's Recipe Mementos

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 mothersmementos@gmail.com.  I'd love to hear from you.
