With Plus Together With As Well As
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.
Some may even look to make improvements on the original. It can be for other reasons like notoriety or personal challenge for pride and maybe even some kicks. Think about this comedians can get more laughs if they are good at imitating some one else right? If they are really good at it this helps bring more people to their show. Just as is done with so many other things that are made there is always a group of these interested individuals that like to do things themselves. These people will go out of their way to copy favorite recipes from all of these restaurants. I would venture to say that if one were to interview many of these DIY (Do It Yourself) people it would be primarily in an effort to be able to save money as a main reason initially.
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.
