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.
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.
First the recipe box or book can get lost. This is especially true after moving from one residence to the next. Also a recipe box or book can be destroyed due to fire or water. And once its gone its gone forever. But there is another method of safe-guarding your recipes for the long term: an electronic recipe keeper. And when I say "electronic recipe keeper" I am not referring to the cheap poor quality ones that you can buy for a few bucks. Those are like the personal organizers that were popular a few years back. Modern electronic recipe keepers are far superior. One major difference from the previous versions (and the main benefit over recipe boxes and books) is the ability to store a back up copy of all of your recipes online. So even if your electronic recipe keeper were to get destroyed or stolen all of your recipes would still be safe. Sure youd have to purchase a new electronic recipe keeper but youd have access to all of your beloved recipes. But having all of your recipes backed up isnt the only benefit.
There may be certain varieties to some degree and some times highly advertised as an edge to promote it however chicken is chicken beef is beef broccoli is broccoli and so on right? How these get prepared and put together to be served though is what truly makes the difference. Recipes for these foods have been handed down through the generations using the basic forms of preparation from the skillet ovens and grills to boiling pots and now microwaves. Keen thought and purpose to introduce new combinations of spices sauces and marinades to these basic methods help to enhance the flavors of these basic foods. This is has and will continue to be goal of many people and certainly with restaurants to help set their style and food apart from others.
