You might wonder why you need to make your own recipe book when there are already tons and tons of cookbooks available, both in the stores and online. You probably already have tons of recipe books on your bookshelves I bet. How many recipes do you use out of each of those books? What if every recipe in a cookbook was something you wanted to make, a recipe your family would really eat?
A Grandma’s Recipe Cookbook
My mom has an index box chock full of our family recipes. I’m sure other members of our family have their own little index boxes as well. The problem with index cards and a box is it’s easy for the cards to get smudged, for the ink to fade and then those recipes are lost. Especially if you are talking about recipes a couple generations old. Keeping these heirloom recipes clean and legible is a great reason to make your own recipe book. You can also have everyone chip in so you have all the recipes of the family, and then give everyone a copy of the family recipe book. What a great gift that would be.
Each week it gets a little harder to create a menu for my family. My husband is a picky eater. I can’t always remember if he liked or didn’t like a particular recipe I have tried. I usually go through the computer in search of something good, and end up losing the recipe or the ink gets smeared and I can’t read it when I finally find something he will eat. I would love to make my own recipe book of recipes I know he will actually eat.
Trying to stay fit and healthy includes eating more chicken in our house. My husband is not a huge fan of chicken so I’m always on the lookout for new chicken recipes. Some fair well, and some fall flat. It would be great to make your own recipe book filled with chicken dishes I know we are going to eat. It’s such a waste to buy a cookbook and find three quarters of the recipes are nothing we would ever eat.
4 Seasons of Favorites
One of my favorite things to cook in summer is shrimp cocktail salad in a martini glass. Winter is now coming to an end and as I think about it, I’m not sure where that recipe is. I’ve been cooking hearty stews and plenty of crock pot creations for a while now. It would be great to have all my seasonal favorites in one place so I can always find them when that first hot day rolls around and I’m ready for a nice light salad.
As you can see creating your own cookbook has a lot of advantages. Recipes are so plentiful, and for those of us who love to cook, like me can have tons and tons of them around. Cookbooks made specifically for my tastes and recipes I know my family is going to like would be fantastic.
