Family Cookbook Scrapbooking

As a child, I would love to read the scrapbook of poems that Aunt Sissy (my father’s sister) created from her poetry column in the local newspaper. Eventually, I came to have the scrapbook, and it brings back fond memories whenever I take a moment to reminisce. It is still one of my prized possessions, and one that I would never give away except to a family member.

Making a family recipe cookbook with my Matilda’s Fantastic Cookbook Software is like digital scrapbooking in many ways. You add stories and photos to your recipes and family biographies. With our new feature of being able to print only one recipe per page, you can get even more creative and customize every page by adding your own special touches.

How about adding some:
Stickers of food
Drawings, sketches
Handwritten notes
Food Wrappers
Fruit & vegetable stickers
Photos of family gatherings, and kitchen appliances
Newspaper clippings of recipes that got “family-ized”
Helpful hints

If you plan to make several copies of your family recipe cookbook to give to everyone, you can simply have your local print shop use your original family cookbook scrapbook to duplicate the pages exactly as you created them.

And, if you use our easy-bind kit, we include many extra sheets of punched paper that can be used to print your digital scrapbook pages to incorporate into your family recipe cookbook. With our easy-snap spine, adding more custom pages is a terrific option.

The art of scrapbooking is a relaxing hobby for many people, and to me it truly is a beautiful art form and craft, especially when Matilda’s Fantastic Cookbook Software is involved. I will let you in on a little secret: I am too impatient to devote the time and imagination to creating my own cookbook scrapbook. I just don’t want to wait. That’s why I created my family cookbook software: you get immediate results!

Happy cookbooking,
