Whether you handwrite recipes or print them out they should be easy to read. Do not print recipes in a cursive font. Will your gift or gifts include samples? If you share cookie recipes your gift may include a dozen cookies. Bread recipes may include a loaf of French bread. Jam and jelly recipes may include a sample in a decorative jar. At this time of year cooking supply manufacturers produce holiday jars decorative lids and tins. Do you need to credit a cookbook author or relative? This is a precautionary measure and you may not have to do it. Still its nice to credit a family member or friend. You may credit the person in the title such as Aunt Ediths All Beef Meatloaf. Its my understanding that making three changes to a recipe title measurement ingredients make the recipe yours. Are you going to add something extra? You may put a collection of slow cooker recipes in a new cooker. Candy recipes may be packaged in a candy dish or jar. Casserole recipes may include a lasagna pan. When I made cookbooks for family members I included a rubber spatula with each one. Once you start thinking about extras you will come up with dozens of ideas. Dieting is never easy but with the growth of the internet its definitely become easier. You dont have to sit around flipping through book after book to find a good recipe.
Food is a big part of our lives and recipes are a natural page element for scrapbooks. Think about creating a recipe album as craft project or add a recipe to your next page layout. Be a part of latest scrapbooking trend and pull out your recipe cards. People who love to cook and Im one of them are always on the lookout for recipes. We clip them from magazines troll the Internet and keeping buying cookbooks. Tantalizing recipes always seem to be calling us. Relatives and friends have asked me for recipes and I share them willingly. Chinese almond cookies are one of my best recipes. A friend gave me the recipe years ago and I modified it to suit my tastes. From the first bite to the last crumb these cookies are a winner. My grandson thinks they are so good I could sell them at street fairs. Your favorite recipes could become a welcome gift. Answer these questions before you get started. Are you going to share general recipes or limit choices to one category? Choose recipes that represent you such as homemade yeast and quick breads. Think of the gift recipient as well. A friend who doesnt bake wont appreciate cookie recipes for example. On the other hand this same friend may appreciate five-ingredient recipes. How many will you share? One Christmas I made cookbooks for relatives. The collection came from Nanas recipe boxes. I printed out the recipes on holiday stationery put them in plastic sleeves assembled them in three-ring binders and put Nanas photo on the cover. Since this was a labor intensive process I limited the number to 25. You may also want to include a photo with each recipe. What printing method will you use? You may put recipes on 3" x 5" cards or enter them in your computer and print them out on 8 1/2" x 11" paper. The file card method requires handwriting whereas the computer method allows you to create multiple gifts.
I dont know about you but I get a great sense of accomplishment when taking time to learn something and it works out. Should you get the urge to try these imitation or secret recipes of the restaurants I think you will be more than pleasantly surprised. I know I have been. If you want to save some money learn how to cook or simply to get a hold of one of your favorite restaurant recipes you wont regret it. I have not tried any of the "700 FREE restaurant recipes" type of sources online. They may be alright too however it has been my experience that if something is really worth while there should be some cost associated for the effort of making it available.
