If you’re like me, cookbooks may seem like a thing of the past, my recipes are now mostly on my phone. I do miss having the pages to flip through and get inspiration from though and having to unlock my phone to see the next ingredient with mucky hands is the worst!
Even more so, I would love to involve my family in making the choices for dinner, and perhaps then I’ll have a better chance of them eating what’s been served. I find choosing the meals the hardest part of meal planning. I’m often met with an “I don’t know” when my family members have been asked what they would like for dinner.
FamilyCookbookProject.com has brought us a way to create a printed personal cookbook filled with your own recipes. Now you can put your favourites from Grandma, other cookbooks, magazines, and the Internet all in one place. Narrow down the huge collection of recipes you don’t look at to just the ones you love.
The FamilyCookbookProject.com program will help you organize recipes by providing professionally designed covers and recipe layouts, automatically created table of contents, and index of recipes resulting in a beautifully printed cookbook. A fun project that everyone can get involved in. If you’re looking for inspiration, you can use the tools to invite others to contribute recipes. Bring your family together and get Grandma to share that secret recipe for biscuits that she stores in her head. Make sure that those precious recipes and memories are passed along to future generations.
The process is quite simple. All you need to do is create an account, invite others to contribute or don’t enter your recipes, design your cookbook, and order copies from the Canadian printer. You can see a sample cookbook here.
Aside from being an extremely special book, a family cookbook can help eliminate the clutter in your kitchen by transforming folders of recipe clippings from magazines and websites into a single source for all your favourite recipes. It is also an ideal gift for upcoming Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.
If your family is involved in the community, these cookbooks also make an amazing fundraiser for schools, churches, sports teams, and more. Get the group involved and make a recipe book that represents your cause and help them earn profits from the project.
No matter how you come up with the recipes, having a custom printed cookbook with your favourites in one place is a total bonus. No more searching for something to cook, just refer to the approved, tried, and tested favourites in your new cookbook from the FamilyCookbookProject.com.
