We all have them; recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. Take the time this year to make your very own personalized Family Cookbook to share with your family and preserve those secret recipes for years to come.
Ask Your Family
The first step is to find as many recipes as you can. Hopefully you’ll be able to find those special dishes that remind you of home. Don’t forget to ask your family members if they”ve got a secret stash of famous family recipes. Make sure you search high and low for these hidden and delicious treasures.
After you have found all of the recipes that you want to include in your book, organize them by Appetizers, Soups/Salads, Vegetables, Mains, Desserts and Drinks. Try to keep a balance of all of the different types of recipes so the cookbook has an even distribution. And remember, never skip on desserts. (:
The most important part of any cookbook is the beautiful pictures! Try to take pictures while you are making the dish and of course the finished product. Don’t stress out if you don’t have pictures for every dish, use descriptive words to detail how delicious everything tastes!
