I can not tell you how frequently 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 yet another recipe from her.
Now that I have an adult daughter of my own, personal I really desired to pass the recipes on her also. Many of these recipes she’s been eating since she was of sufficient age for solids. My daughter also has a recipe book from her aunt to be with her dad’s side.

Recipe scrapbooks could 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 make use of an 8×8 scrapbook and also have the recipes in some recoverable format, as an alternative to index cards.
I think it’s a great mix to mix photos and recipes. For example, friends family photo at the start of the album is a good way to start off the album. If you’ve called for recipes from multiple members of the family, put a photograph of the recipe submitter on a single page and also the recipe on the opposite page.

It’s also a great help have a grocery list. Consider the actual recipe on a single page and a shopping list for the opposite page. I frequently take a recipe for the market with me and shop off of the recipe page. By creating the list, the recipe book holder just must remove the grocery list page and take it to the market.
Another idea would be to create a little bit of history with your recipes. If you’ve had several members of the family contribute recipes, consider getting the recipe onpage, photos on one page as well as a bit of information on the author over a 3rd page. Most scrapbooks are extremely expandable, so there is room for most pages in a single album.
All of my cookbooks have measurement charts and converters inside them, when making a recipe album, it is great to add this information to either the rear or the front.
Recipe albums are a fantastic gift for both the new bride, specifically if the gift originates from her husband’s family with recipes for all of the dishes he grew up with and for the college graduate starting their first home.
