Hi Everyone

Hello,

I decided about a year ago to make a cookbook. My grandmother had stumbled upon all of my great-grandmother's recipes that had been lost for over 13 years. I decided to use her recipes as well as many others to create a cookbook so that my family would not have to suffer through losing such priceless items ever again. I hope I can complete it before my grandmother's health declines too much. It would be a great gift for her so I have been trying to work very hard on it. It is rather hard to find time with running my own business and having 2 young kids but I really want to be able to give her this gift.

did my own cookbook

hi every one my name is tiffani, my 8 yr. old son wanted to do a cookbook of his own. he is a childhood cancer survivor and wanted to give back to the children's miracle network, along with helping to raise money for other sick kids. with the help of myself and his grammy (my mom) we did it. the cookbook has over 550 recipes in it, and everybody who bought one just loves it. if anyone would like one let me know. they are $15 for the book and $5 shipping. it will also help you to do your own.

Creating cookbooks

I have been working on a family cookbook for a few years, but got a bit discouraged when my old computer crashed (struck by lightning) and wiped out the whole project. My backup disc would not work on the new computer.
I'm ready to try again if I can find a good website publisher that will start me out with the software. I have used Cookbooks by Morris Press in the past, when I did a community heritage cookbook as a fundraiser for a community development group I belonged to. If I find out any more information about how to get published,I will share.
