After 18 years of storing recipe cards, print outs, and cut outs from the back of boxes in a tattered binder, I finally organized everything into this family recipe cookbook. Complete with dividers and sheet protectors to keep the recipe pages clean while baking.

I can’t believe it took me so long to do this! It’s been 3 months since I compiled it and I couldn’t love it more. I plan on making one for each of my kids when they get married, filled to the brim with our favorite family recipes.

Right now I have it in a 1″ binder, but will most likely bump it up to a 2″ binder as I continue to print off recipes from my blog and other sites. I really tried to like digital storage for recipes, using my phone or ipad while cooking to see the recipes, but I just can’t get used to that. I’m such a hard copy gal, who still uses a paper calendar and day planner, so having the recipe printed out in front of me works best.

I’ve created a cover as well as category pages to divide the following sections:

Breads, desserts, main dishes, appetizers and snacks, vegetables, soups and stews, sides, and salads.

How To Assemble a Family Cookbook Using Our Cookbook Printables

You’ll need:

  • A binder with pockets
  • Sheet Protectors
  • Cookbook Printables
  • Divider Tabs

Most food blogs have a recipe card plug-in that makes printing recipes easy. I’ve been slowly working on printing out my blog recipes to keep in my binder. When I want to make the recipe, I print out a copy to keep in my binder.

I love the handwritten and typewritter printed index cards from my grandma, and keep them in the binder pockets. I took the time to type the recipes in a word doc to print and keep in the sheet protectors, but just couldn’t get rid of the cards. So now I have both.

I have so many bread recipes that I created sub categories. A quick bread section and a yeast bread section. I simply added a sticky tab to divide those sections.

Desserts are definitely my weekness. I like cooking, but I LOVE baking. I decided it was probably a good idea to create an extra tab just for all of the cookie recipes that I have.
