Create a Family Cookbook
Two ideas for the recipe book--- use some of the beautiful scrapbook papers that are out there to add color (or comment) to the pages. Also, if Great Aunt Tilly always brought the favorite baked beans to the annual
picnic–put her picture or one taken at the picnic on the page with the recipe. Share the pictures (copies) too.

I received an e-mail message (included below) from a HomeCook’n Newsletter subscriber that got me thinking...Use your Cook’n software to print your favorite recipes and make a cookbook that you can give to your family and friends. It’s a personalized gift that everyone will love.
Last year, Kathy did this for all of her sisters. She printed her family favorite recipes that had been passed down through the ages on printer-ready 3x5 and 4x6 cards and put them in our recipe card binders.
Her sisters absolutely LOVED them! It meant so much more to them than any gift she could have bought at the store. Elizabeth was the one who got me thinking about this. She said:
“After much reflection, our family has decided that Christmas shouldn’t be about spending money on gifts. Instead, we will give to others less fortunate and make gifts of our time to each other (spend time with each other, make gifts for each other, etc.) because that is what life is about–not stressing over “I gotta get so-and-so *something*”.
I think you have a great product and I love being on your mailing list –so this isn’t meant as any sort of negative judgment... I just had an idea to email you with my thoughts (for some strange reason!).
My best to you and your family during the upcoming holidays – may you be blessed with happy times with your loved ones.
Thank you Elizabeth. Great thinking! Happy Holidays and God Bless!
