I can not tell you how frequently I’ve called my mom and said “mom I just require your recipe for such and such”. It’s been a slow accumulation of recipes, but she chuckles every time I realize I need just one more recipe from her.
Now that I offer an adult daughter of my very own I really wanted to pass the recipes on her also. Many of these recipes she’s been eating since she was who are old enough for solids. My daughter even 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 just right to hold a 3×5 index card. You can also readily 8×8 scrapbook and also have the recipes in some recoverable format, as opposed to index cards.
I think it’s really a great mix to blend photos and recipes. For example, a group family photo at the beginning 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 on a single page and the recipe around the opposite page.

It’s also a great assist to have a list. Consider the actual recipe on a single page and a shopping list for the opposite page. I very often take a recipe for the market when camping and shop over recipe page. By creating this list, the recipe book holder just has to remove the grocery list page and take it for the market.
Another idea would be to create a little history with your recipes. If you’ve had several members of the family contribute recipes, consider keeping the recipe onpage, photos one page plus a bit of information for the author on the 3rd page. Most scrapbooks are extremely expandable, so there’s room for several pages in a single 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 trunk or the front.
Recipe albums are a great gift for both the new bride, particularly if the gift arises from her husband’s family with recipes for all from the dishes he knew as a kid and for the college graduate establishing their first home.
