I cannot tell you present I’ve called my mom and said “mom I just need your recipe for such and such”. It’s been a slow accumulation of recipes, but she chuckles every time I realize I need one more recipe from her.
Now that I have an adult daughter of my very own I really planned to pass the recipes to her also. Many of these recipes she’s been eating since she was of sufficient age for solids. My daughter also offers a recipe book from her aunt to be with her dad’s side.

Recipe scrapbooks can be given to aunts, uncles, cousins, children etc. A 6×6 scrapbook works wonderfully. They are large enough to hold a 3×5 index card. You can also readily 8×8 scrapbook and enjoy the recipes in some recoverable format, instead of index cards.
I think it’s a great mix to blend photos and recipes. For example, friends family photo at the beginning of the album is a great way to start off the album. If you’ve asked for recipes from multiple family, put an image of the recipe submitter using one page and also the recipe on the opposite page.

It’s another great help have a grocery list. Consider the actual recipe on one page along with a shopping list for the opposite page. I very often take a recipe for the market beside me and shop over recipe page. By creating this list, the recipe book holder just should remove the list page and take it towards the market.
Another idea is to create a little bit of history together with your recipes. If you’ve had several family contribute recipes, consider keeping the recipe on page, photos on one page as well as a bit of information around the author with a 3rd page. Most scrapbooks are incredibly expandable, so there is certainly room for a lot of pages in a album.
All of my cookbooks have measurement charts and converters in them, when making a recipe album, it is great to add this info to either the rear or the front.
Recipe albums are a great gift for both the new bride, particularly if the gift originates from her husband’s family with recipes for all from the dishes he knew as a kid and for the college graduate setting up their first home.
