How to Make a Recipe Book

By Julie Boehlke

Create a recipe book that is not only easy to use, but will stand the test of time. Created with the busy cook in mind, you can quickly add favorite recipes that fit your lifestyle and family traditions. The protected pages and heavy duty binder is what separates this recipe book from others. By combining your favorite recipes into one recipe book, you are eliminating added clutter from several recipe books, magazine recipes, newspaper recipes and hand written recipes that are scattered in different locations. By having your favorites in one spot you are making them convenient and easy to locate when you need them at a moments notice. Being able to personalize this book makes it a wonderful heirloom with a touch of simplicity and practicality.
