The Reasons Why You Want to Create a Cookbook
There are lots of reasons why someone would want to create their own cookbook. Maybe you have a lot of recipes simply lying around and you want to organize them or maybe you want to earn some money from selling it or use it as a fundraiser. Whatever your reason, you’ve got a lot of options available to you.
Tips for Making a Cookbook
Now let’s get into the heart of the matter, when the actual creativity begins when you first start thinking about how the cookbook will flow or look. First off, don’t be blinded by your own sense of style. What I mean by that is sometimes when we create things they look really good, but everyone else seems to disagree. Make sure you ask other people in your family or maybe a few friends what they think of the recipes or the design of the pages.
Another tip would be to add your personal touch. Add a personal touch that relates directly to you and not some generic item. Such as, you could name some of your recipes something like: “Ann’s Chocolate Delight”. Or maybe you could throw in a graphic of one of your kids enjoying the apple pie recipe. The possibilities are endless when making a cookbook yourself like this. You can even make categories for the recipes to more reflect your personality.
If you are doing this for a fundraiser, don’t fret because you can still add personal touches to it. If you’re school is creating the cookbook, you can name recipes using mascots. Keep in mind that some recipes are not to be changed per the owner’s request. But usually when you include the source of the recipes, the owner agrees with it.
