I are unable to tell you how many times I’ve called my mom and said “mom I just need to have your recipe for such and such”. It’s been a sluggish accumulation of recipes, but she chuckles each time I realize I need just one more recipe from her.
Now that I come with an adult daughter of my own I really wished to pass the recipes on her also. Many of these recipes she’s been eating since she was old enough for solids. My daughter even offers a recipe book from her aunt on her behalf dad’s side.

Recipe scrapbooks could be given to aunts, uncles, cousins, children etc. A 6×6 scrapbook works wonderfully. They are sufficient to hold a 3×5 index card. You can also readily 8×8 scrapbook and enjoy the recipes in writing, as an alternative to index cards.
I think it’s actually a great mix to mix photos and recipes. For example, a bunch family photo at the beginning of the album is a superb way to get started the album. If you’ve requested recipes from multiple family, put a photograph of the recipe submitter on one page and the recipe on the opposite page.

It’s another great assistance to have a grocery list. Consider the actual recipe on a single page as well as a shopping list for the opposite page. I very often take a recipe on the market with me and shop off of the recipe page. By creating their list, the recipe book holder just must remove the shopping list page and take it to the market.
Another idea is to create a little history along with your recipes. If you’ve had several loved ones contribute recipes, consider having the recipe on page, photos on one page plus a bit of information on the author over a 3rd page. Most scrapbooks are extremely expandable, so there exists room for many pages in a album.
All of my cookbooks have measurement charts and converters in them, while making a recipe album, it is great to add this info to either a corner or the front.
Recipe albums make the perfect gift for both the new bride, especially if the gift emanates from her husband’s family with recipes for all in the dishes he grew up with and for the college graduate establishing their first home.
