I cannot 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 sluggish accumulation of recipes, but she chuckles whenever I realize I need yet another recipe from her.
Now that I come with an adult daughter of my own I really planned to pass the recipes on to her also. Many of these recipes she’s been eating since she was who are old 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 big enough to hold a 3×5 index card. You can also readily 8×8 scrapbook and also have the recipes in some recoverable format, instead of index cards.
I think it is a great mix to mix photos and recipes. For example, a group family photo at the start of the album is an excellent way to start the album. If you’ve requested recipes from multiple loved ones, put a photograph of the recipe submitter on one page as well as the recipe around the opposite page.

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