* Schedule a family baking day to ensure your tried-and-true family recipes continue on for generations.

* Annually, or every few years, gather relatives far and wide for an enjoyable time to reminisce, share photos, cook and eat together.

* Get everyone involved in building and contributing to a family Web page or blog that highlights recent get-togethers, news, photos and favorite recipes.

* Pick one night a week to take the family on a culinary journey to another part of the world.

* Host monthly movie nights for family to experience old classics or the latest blockbusters.
