They continue push each other in developing recipes techniques and signature menus that keep us coming back for more. We all have our favorite menu items and while one person may prefer one restaurant over another for a particular entree or appetizer the fact is they all are a genuine article and clearly worth the effort to imitate. Just a note in regard to businesses (especially non-restaurant) some have to take steps and go further and get patents or licenses on their discoveries to help protect them from being copied. With restaurants it is a little tougher as getting patents and licensing on food is much more difficult and not quite the same as building up a new technological advance like an I-pad.
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.
You may want to keep the album with an overall uniform look or have each individual page have a unique look. You can use recipe cards or journaling blocks for the ingredients and instructions. You may also want to include a photo of the dish or a picture of the person who gave you the recipe. Consider adding comments about why you love the dish or opinions from your family on why it is one of their favorites. Try journaling about the history of the recipe or any special memories you have about it. Making the album personal is what scrapbooking is all about. Scrapbooking recipes doesnt have to be limited to a recipe album. Think about including recipes in other scrapbooks. Highlight the recipe for witchs brew on a Halloween page layout. Recipes on Thanksgiving pages are an obvious choice. Include your secret recipe for perfect gravy. How about including the recipes for the dinner you made for your husband on your first Valentines Day? You can also include your grandmothers apple pie recipe on a page all about your memories of her.
They certainly dont have to be expensive either. Most cost about the same as a nice dinner for two and can include extra information from making wine to growing your own herbs if you are in to that. It is really pretty incredible what some have included along with the recipe books they are promoting. As with anything do take some time to review before making any purchase of course but once you do get your feet wet have some fun and be prepared to be amazed with the results. You sit down to plan the menu for the week and get ready for another trip to the grocery store. There was that recipe you made a couple weeks ago that everyone loved where is it? You dig through handwritten papers torn out magazine pages and tattered index cards.
