I are unable to tell you how often I’ve called my mom and said “mom I just need to have your recipe for such and such”. It’s been a pokey accumulation of recipes, but she chuckles every time I realize I need just one more recipe from her.
Now that I provide an adult daughter of my very own I really wanted to pass the recipes on to her also. Many of these recipes she’s been eating since she was tall enough for solids. My daughter also offers a recipe book from her aunt for my child dad’s side.

Recipe scrapbooks could 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 work with an 8×8 scrapbook and have the recipes in writing, as an alternative to index cards.
I think it’s really a great mix to mix photos and recipes. For example, a bunch family photo at the beginning of the album is a good way to begin the album. If you’ve asked for recipes from multiple loved ones, put an image of the recipe submitter on one page as well as the recipe for the opposite page.

It’s also a great assist to have a grocery list. Consider the actual recipe using one page and a shopping list around the opposite page. I very often take a recipe for the market with me at night and shop off the recipe page. By creating their list, the recipe book holder just has to remove the grocery list page and take it for the market.
Another idea is to create a little history using your recipes. If you’ve had several family contribute recipes, consider getting the recipe on page, photos using one page and a bit of information on the author with a 3rd page. Most scrapbooks are extremely expandable, so there is room for most pages in a album.
All of my cookbooks have measurement charts and converters in them, while making a recipe album, it’s great to add this information to either a corner or the front.
Recipe albums are a good gift for both the new bride, specifically if the gift comes from her husband’s family with recipes for all in the dishes he grew up with and for the college graduate starting their first home.
