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.
So the journey began in search of restaurant recipes. Most restaurants do not give out their recipes and why would they? They might lose a return customer if they did. I do see some restaurants that are selling some of their menu items in the grocery stores more than before but sort of limiting it to just a few items. I have also read about a person that would ask the cooks for their recipes and how some might spill the beans once in awhile but again fairly limited results. I remember one time my wife and I were at a Dennys restaurant late one night and how much we enjoyed their marinara sauce used with the mozzarella sticks we had ordered. We asked the waitress about it and she did check with the cooks on that but they really didnt know much about it and we thank her for trying.
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.
