New Year's Resolution and a Cookbook Template
One of my resolutions is to be a better keeper of our family's history.
While I have some family members out here for an extended holiday vacation I thought we'd do a fun bonding activity and make a cookbook.
I put together a cover and inside pages with photoshop, printed out several pages (one for each member of the family). It has a place for an illustration and a recipe, those who don't want to draw can add another recipe or we could cut out magazines, clip art... for a more three dimensional page. I'll also suggest that they write where it came from or the story behind it.
I just want to have handwriting and thoughts of each person. I'll scan these pages into the computer and make a pdf for everyone to print off. Or maybe for next Christmas give the printed version as gifts.
I thought I'd give you an opportunity to make your family cookbook. The front page can be personalized and here is the inside page.
I'll let you know how it goes!
Let me know if you make a cookbook too!
