Let’s talk recipes. Do you keep your favorite recipes in a recipe box on index cards? Have you ever thought about preserving your favorite family recipes? Personally, I prefer to have my recipes in a book that has full-color photos that I can flip through. Please don’t think that is something that you cannot do because it definitely is something that you can.
You don’t have to be a food writer in order to have your family’s favorite recipes printed in a personalized book. Thanks to CreateMyCookbook.com, you can preserve those delicious recipes that your family has enjoyed for years.
This year, I am creating a cookbook for my oldest child who will be graduating from college. I want her to have a copy of the recipes that have meant so much to our family so that when she is out on her own, she will be able to re-create our favorite dishes in her own home. I know there are recipes that she will cherish, like her grandmother’s Chicken and Dumplings and Tea Cakes. The cookbook will become an invaluable keepsake.
I have already started the process and the book is looking good. It was a bit of a learning curve, but once I got started it seemed to get easier. Fortunately, CreateMyCookbook has tutorials that provide guidance located in the Help Center.
Know all of those precious recipes that your mother and grandmother wrote out on index cards? You don’t have to take the time to type of each of the recipes. CreateMyCookbook uses a service called WeTypeIt. To use WeTypeIt, you upload a photo of your recipe and the service will type it for you. Each recipe = 1 recipe credit and the first two credits are free. (5 credits for $3.95, 30 credits for $19.95, and 100 credits for $59.95)
CreateMyCookbook is a great way to protect, preserve, and share your family recipes. You can create your very own professionally printed custom cookbook from the comfort of your home, including your family’s favorite recipes. Books start at $19.95 for up to 100 pages that are coil bound. Hardback cookbooks start at $34.95 for up to 100 pages. The free Cookbook Designer helps take the guesswork out of the process.
