The one that started it all! My first venture into the world of illustrating recipes.

The beginning was quite practical. I rarely relate to recipes in list + steps format. To me, it’s a sequence of connected actions and I appreciate seeing it all laid out visually.

So I took our family’s most prized cookie recipe (at least in my opinion) and doodled it out so I could follow it better. And since I’m me…I doodled it rather precisely and used watercolor!

The rest is history. :) I was proud of the final result and made prints for my aunts and cousins as Christmas gifts and they were well received!

Now I just can’t stop making family recipes into little infographic works of art! It’s one of my most popular Christmas commissions each year.
