Custom Family Cookbook

Some people have been calling this the iTunes of cookbooks. But I just found TasteBook.com and was impressed at how easy it is to create a personal cookbook with all your family's favorite recipes. At TasteBook.com you can publish 100 of your own recipes or favorite recipes from some popular online recipe sites in a professional binder with huge professional looking photos and recipe cards. If that's too much you can use some of the sample cookbooks they provide, some from other food bloggers, as a basis for your cookbook.

Give it a try, then come back and post about your success.

It is nice if you have a minimum of $35 to burn for one cookbook. Of course, if you want to produce cookbooks for 10-15 people, it starts getting pretty expensive awful quick.

Also, I'm not excited about entering my favorite secret family recipes (and only 100 of them?) on a website that could use them for whatever purpose they want. Check the use agreement--if they want to put Aunt Trudie's Secret Rum Cake on their home page, they can do it.

More than any of that, though, a family cookbook isn't a book you print once. It's a living document that changes as family members are added and new stories come around.

Check out cookbookpeople.com for a better alternative--software that sits on your own computer, with no fees, that lets you print out as many cookbooks as you want from home.
