One of the ways my fiance and I bonded was by cooking together. It was an important part of our courtship -- we still do it regularly and it is a creative exercise that we really look forward to sharing with our children someday.
SO. We have pioneered a bunch of really awesome recipes during our courtship,and thought of somehow turning these into wedding favors. We do (shamelessly!) post to facebook when we have a meal that's a great success, and he loves to brag (good-naturedly) to his coworkers about his culinary achievements. The point is everyone knows this is "a thing" with us, we love to cook.
So, If you were presented with "a buffet of 'courtship' recipe cards" from which you could choose ones that were interesting to you, or perhaps receive a little bundle of our favorite recipes at your place setting... what would your reaction be? Is this pathetic, endearing, or just meh?
We are also providing a candy bar, and giving away bottles of wine***, so this is really just a fluffy sentimental extra. But, ... designing and printing recipe cards takes time and money, both of which we are running short on (especially time, our jobs are killing us right now). But we like the idea of sharing our love of cooking, so if it would be appreciated, we're totally willing.
Thanks in advance for everyone's feedback!
***The wine is "free". It was made by my late father, who died less than a year ago. All his wine is quite good, and I think he liked to share it better than he liked to drink it. So, the substantial cellar he left behind was too much for mom to drink alone, and this is the perfect opportunity to share it with loved ones, just like he would have wanted to, and also include him in the wedding.
