I cannot tell you how often I’ve called my mom and said “mom I just require your recipe for such and such”. It’s been a pokey 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, personal I really desired 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 also offers a recipe book from her aunt on her behalf dad’s side.

Recipe scrapbooks can be given to aunts, uncles, cousins, children etc. A 6×6 scrapbook works wonderfully. They are big enough to hold a 3×5 index card. You can also work with an 8×8 scrapbook and also have the recipes in some recoverable format, instead of index cards.
I think it’s a great mix to combine photos and recipes. For example, friends family photo at the outset of the album is an excellent way to get started the album. If you’ve requested recipes from multiple members of the family, put a photo of the recipe submitter one page along with the recipe for the opposite page.

It’s and a great help to have a shopping list. Consider the actual recipe using one 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 the recipe page. By creating this list, the recipe book holder just has to 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 having the recipe onpage, photos using one page and a bit of information around the author on a 3rd page. Most scrapbooks are extremely expandable, so there is room for many pages in a album.
All of my cookbooks have measurement charts and converters inside them, when making a recipe album, it is great to add this info to either the rear or the front.
Recipe albums make the perfect gift for both the new bride, specifically if the gift arises from her husband’s family with recipes for all of the dishes he knew as a kid and for the college graduate establishing their first home.
