Have you looked at your calendar lately?
Where on Earth has this year gone already?
I admit that mentally I am still somewhere in late May. My PDA, however, reminds me daily that we are smack on the verge of August. And that means we are turning the corner on, you guessed it, Christmas! It will be here before you know it.
If you are planning to create a family recipe cookbook as a Christmas gift, then I suggest you consider getting ahead of the game and start working now on putting your family recipe cookbook together using my Matilda’s Fantastic Cookbook Software.
Here is a basic timeline to help you organize your thoughts and activities in time for Christmas:
Select your family recipes and type them into the software’s Recipe tab. You may also cut and paste them from other documents or websites.
Write any stories about the family recipes (especially funny ones), or write brief stories about the people who made (or still make) the signature recipes you have selected.
Collect photos of your family members and add to them to your family recipe cookbook in the People tab.
Use family gatherings to take any missing photos that you want to include.
Print copies of your family recipe cookbook on your home printer (be sure to have on hand enough ink cartridges and paper, etc.). Or, arrange to print your family recipe cookbook through your local fast printer.
One thing is for sure, creating a family memory cookbook is a wonderful way to personalize your Christmas gifts for all family members without driving all over town or stressing about what to give. Whether you include family recipes or your own personal favorites, using Matilda’s Fantastic Cookbook Software will make it easy.
P.S. Have you worked on your cookbook today?
