If you want to make a family recipe book but your family is not cooperating (or you are running out of time because your family reunion or wedding is approaching quickly), then consider one of the 5 (absurd) shortcuts below that will help you make a family recipe book:
5 Shortcuts You Can Take to Make a Family Recipe Book (Absurd)
1. Ask your next door neighbors to give you their family recipes (they will probably want credit in your recipe book).
2. Temporarily adopt people at your local old folk’s home and get recipes from them.
3. Borrow recipe pages from another family member’s already-made cookbook.
4. Cut and paste recipes onto scrapbook pages from the newspaper or cooking magazines then photocopy them and assemble into stapled pages (and hope the copyright police won’t notice!)
5. Pick your 10 favorite recipes and make hand-written recipe cards to distribute in ribbon-bound packets (which should take more time than using our software).
Okay, absurd as the above shortcuts seem, they are actual examples of what some people have done to expedite their family recipe cookbook-making progress. In truth, there are no real shortcuts to making a truly personal family recipe book like the ones you can make with Matilda’s Fantastic Cookbook Software. We make it so easy to preserve treasured family traditions, photos, and recipes in professionally-designed formats.
So, if you want to make a family recipe book but your family is not cooperating (or you are running out of time), the best shortcut of all is to call in Erin to help make your family recipe book. And, that’s not an absurd solution!
