Instant heirlooms: custom ceramic plates fired with handwritten family recipes

If your family is anything like mine, all their famous recipes are tucked away in over-stuffed folders and recipe boxes…and only the chef knows for sure where they are. How wonderful would it be to start serving some of Grandma’s famous oatmeal squares atop a handmade pottery plate, with the recipe for those very squares right underneath in her sweet handwriting?

The custom recipe plates and serving ware, from Prairie Hills Pottery are pure awesome.

Truly, the gifting possibilities are endless. Scan a copy of Dad’s secret lasagna recipe, and the artisans at Prairie Hill will fire it onto plates for each of her kids or grandkids. Make a custom tray for your aunt as a thank-you for toting along her lemon shortbread melties whenever she comes to visit.

These pieces are also perfect for wedding gifts–create a set featuring treasured family recipes for the newlyweds. And if recipes aren’t your thing (or the newlyweds’), Prairie Hill Pottery will happily emblazon a custom piece with a favorite quote or even a snippet of an old love letter or postcard.

I seriously think I might need a whole collection of these trays and plates of my own. Wonder how many recipes I can get my grandma to write down before her hand gets tired. Of course, I’ll be sure to stop her while she’s still got some energy left to whip up a batch of her legendary gumdrop cookies. -Stephanie S.
