Cookbooking: The Delicious New Way to Scrapbook

Cookbooking: The Delicious New Way to Scrapbook
by Barbara Winkler [745.593 Win]

This book provides inspiration for organizing your recipes for yourself or to create gifts for family and friends. I especially liked the idea of creating a heritage scrapbook of family recipes. Pasting old family photos along with the recipes and letters written long ago in a bound book makes a great present for someone dear to you or as a keepsake for yourself. Winkler gives detailed instructions for making the book from the cover to the last page. Another idea I like is to create a holidays cookbook of all those special occasions. I like this idea because I am always thumbing through cookbooks for that potato puff recipe that goes so well with the turkey that my husband fixes on the grill. Every year I tell myself that I will put copies of the recipes that I fix for these special days one place, but I never do it. Making a book like this is the motivation that I need. This book has a felt divider for each holiday with a pocket to hold recipe cards and notes about the celebration. -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department
