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

Recipe scrapbooks could be given to aunts, uncles, cousins, children etc. A 6×6 scrapbook works wonderfully. They are just right to hold a 3×5 index card. You can also make use of an 8×8 scrapbook and have the recipes in writing, rather than index cards.
I think it’s actually a great mix to mix photos and recipes. For example, an organization family photo at the start of the album is a great way to begin the album. If you’ve requested recipes from multiple family members, put a photograph of the recipe submitter on a single page as well as the recipe around the opposite page.

It’s also a great help have a grocery list. Consider the actual recipe using one page plus a shopping list for the opposite page. I usually take a recipe on the market with me and shop over recipe page. By creating this list, the recipe book holder just should remove the list page and take it to the market.
Another idea would be to create a amount of history with your recipes. If you’ve had several family contribute recipes, consider having the recipe on-page, photos on one page as well as a bit of information about the author with a 3rd page. Most scrapbooks are incredibly expandable, so there is room for many pages in a single album.
All of my cookbooks have measurement charts and converters within them, then when making a recipe album, it is great to add these details to either a corner or the front.
Recipe albums are a good gift for both the new bride, especially if the gift arises from her husband’s family with recipes for all in the dishes he grew up with and for the college graduate setting up their first home.
