A few years back, I made one of these for my wife, Doris to take to a friend’s wedding shower. As I recall, the plan was for all of the ladies to bring one or two of their favorite recipes to fill the box for the bride to be. When Doris returned from the shower, I suddenly had three more orders to fill.
I’ve also donated one of these to a silent auction at my church. That also turned in to a bit of a bidding war. One of the losing bidders put in her personal order after church the following Sunday.
It’s really a pretty straight-forward design, so I’m not sure what all the fuss is about. People seem to like the slot on top to hold their recipes while they are cooking.
