I cannot tell you how often I’ve called my mom and said “mom I just have to have your recipe for such and such”. It’s been a slow accumulation of recipes, but she chuckles each time I realize I need another recipe from her.
Now that I offer an adult daughter of my own I really wished to pass the recipes on to her also. Many of these recipes she’s been eating since she was of sufficient age for solids. My daughter boasts a recipe book from her aunt for my child dad’s side.

Recipe scrapbooks can 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 use an 8×8 scrapbook and also have the recipes in writing, rather than index cards.
I think it is a great mix to mix photos and recipes. For example, an organization family photo at the beginning of the album is an excellent way to start off the album. If you’ve wanted recipes from multiple loved ones, put an image of the recipe submitter on a single page and also the recipe on the opposite page.

It’s another great assistance to have a list. Consider the actual recipe using one page plus a shopping list on the opposite page. I often take a recipe for the market with me at night and shop over recipe page. By creating their list, the recipe book holder just has to remove the list page and take it to the market.
Another idea is always to create a amount of history together with your recipes. If you’ve had several loved ones contribute recipes, consider getting the recipe on page, photos using one page plus a bit of information around the author over a 3rd page. Most scrapbooks have become expandable, so there’s room for many pages in one album.
All of my cookbooks have measurement charts and converters within them, while making a recipe album, it’s great to add these records to either the back or the front.
Recipe albums are a fantastic gift for both the new bride, specifically gift arises from her husband’s family with recipes for all of the dishes he grew up with and for the college graduate setting up their first home.
