It's such a creative gift, and there's something nice about having recipes organized ideass one place. I love cooking, too. I still have my recipe scrapbook, and sometime I plan on actually putting it together.
What a great tribute you have here to your mom. I can tell she was something very special. God Bless you, and sorry for your loss. No matter how old they are, and how prepared we are for their passing, we still miss their silly giggles, laughs, and stories.
