Last week a few of us were talking about how difficult it is to get our parents' recipes. My mom and dad both tend to eyeball things, and when I ask them how much they usually say, "Eh, just a little, not too much."

Each time I go home, I watch my mom prepare dishes and take notes, sometimes even video. It's tedious, but I know that I now have those recipes in hand.

The family recipes mean a lot to me, and I was wondering how you felt about them. Are yours written down somewhere?
