Making a cookbook: some creative ideas

Do you not yet know exactly what you want to capture in your personal recipe book? We are happy to help you with these inspiring ideas:

• Collect all family recipes and capture them together with (family) photos for future generations.
• Ask your friends to send you their favourite recipes and create a collaborative cookbook that you share online and offline.
• Dream away from holiday memories and find the recipe of your favourite meals there for every holiday. Look for nice holiday photos and you will even feel as though you are on holiday again from home.
• Give a cookbook as a gift to someone with recipes specially selected for him or her.
• Is there a distant country where you have always wanted to go on holiday, but it hasn't come to that point yet? Search the internet and cookbooks for local recipes and collect them in an inspiring cookbook to dream away.
• Create a digital recipe book that you keep filling up and share with your friends. Being a food blogger has never been easier.

2. Fill your book with recipes

The software resembles a recipe fill-in book: first add the title, ingredient list and description per recipe as a new chapter and then choose from the fifty layouts, which you drag to the correct pages and fill with photos of your favorite recipes. If necessary, alternate the recipes with funny or moving stories and photos about your favorite recipes that make your mouth water. Between the text and photos, you can leave space by adding a 'empty box', so that later - when you have the book printed - you can paste clippings, pictures or recipes into it

3. Order your recipe book or share it online

Is your own recipe book completely ready? Add a nice cover photo and read your personal cookbook one last time. Is it completely to your liking? For €35.85 you can order a softcover cookbook of 40 pages as a real printed book. Do you have hundreds of recipes? Travel Diaries prints books up to 320 pages, with a choice of sizes and cover types - view all prices of printed books. You can also share your recipe book as a digital cookbook with your friends and family or share it as a food blog with other internet users.

Tip: create a travel journal or baby book

You can of course also use the photo book software to record other memories. For example, collect your best travel stories and photos in a travel diary, record your pregnancy in a pregnancy diary, or make a baby book in which you record all those wonderful first moments of your child. The Travel Diaries diary app is for all the adventures, moments and stories that are worth recording, to never forget these beautiful memories.
