Printing Your Family Cookbook
In the article I mention that there are online sites to help you create your book. There are several sites that offer photo books, but Blurb.com is one that I found that specifically offers cookbook formats.
Get started by downloading their free software and choosing one of their cookbook layouts. Drop the recipes into the layout and if you like, embellish the pages with illustrations, backgrounds, and photos. Once your order is placed you will receive your book(s) in about a week. They also offer discounts on volume orders, so be sure to check into that if ordering enough for the whole clan. You can preview a few examples books like this one on their site as well.
