    Creating a Family Recipe Book Project

    A family project to help children learn about cooking, determination, while creating a family keepsake.

     

    Over the course of history, meals have always brought people together.  The Passover meal and the Last Supper come to mind immediately.  The mass is a celebratory "meal" for Catholics worldwide on a daily basis so it is no wonder that so much importance is placed on using food as a way of bringing people together.

    The meals celebrated in your home will be the reminders of love, holidays, traditions, and family events for your children for years to come.  Why not create a recipe book as a family to keep those special recipes and celebrations in the hearts of your children forever.

     

    Project Steps:

    Step 1:  Choose the style of recipe sheet (Jr. or Sr.) that you would like to use.

      Juniour Version

    Juniour Version of Recipe Templates

    These Jr. Recipe Sheets are great for new young cooks.  Not only do they have ample room for ingredient lists and instructions, but they also have a space for tools needed to complete the recipe.  Writers will not run out of room either as additional sheets are included.  We have also included a keepsake page as well for recipe details and even a photo of young chefs in action or their creations.

     

      Senior Version

    Senior Version of Recipe Templates

    Senior Version of Cookbook Template

    Our Sr. recipe sheets are perfect for more experienced cooks.  The clean, fun and simple format makes it easy to use.  This version does not include memory pages or spaces to affix or draw pictures of food creations.  There is ample writing space for ingredients as well as instruction.   Tabbed edges help to organize the more then twenty different food categories available for this project.

     

     

    Step 2:  Choose the food categories that you would like to include in your book.

    Select some or all of the available food categories to create a really nice practical keepsake cookbook.  Each individual food category set comes with a left and right side tabbed recipe sheet, one additional sheet suitable for either side, and a detail keepsake sheet (Jr. version only) to put a picture of the recipe once made and a little bit of history about why it is a special recipe to include in this collection.

    Step 3:  Choose a cover for your cookbook.

    Step 4:  Print out your files to suit your needs. 

    Double sided printing (back to back printing) is one option or using single sheets that could be slid into a page protector is another option that will keep your pages clean and safe as well.

    Step 5:  Fill in sheets with desired favourite recipes and pictures and place in sheet protectors to preserve them. 

    Once printed out and filled in, place recipes in clear sheet protectors so that papers and pictures will not get soiled and stained.  When opened flat, tabs should be on the outside of each page and move down the sides of the page as more food categories are added.  Note that some pages have tabs on either side to fit on the next page regardless of what side it is; this is because we wanted to preserve the neatness of the tabs and enhance the look of the finished product.  We are hoping that this book will become a keepsake for years to come.  Not to mention, this project is a wonderful way to show proof of learning for home skills, math usage, handwriting, gathering and organizing data from multiple sources, etc.  Use the picture keepsake page provided in the Juniour Version to add details and photos to tell the entire story of your little chef's accomplishments.

    Note:  Pictures can be printed on photo paper, or on plain paper with a higher resolution.  Don't let the need for "photo paper" or the cost of it deter you from adding in the pictures.  Keep it simple, affordable, and do-able.  Our projects are not about the perfect end product but about the fun in creating them.  Do whatever works for your family!

    Step 6:  Organize sheets in a three-ring binder that has a clear slide cover pocket.

    Step 7:  Place cover sheet into the binder's clear slide cover pocket.

    We suggest either printing the page and putting it in a 3-ring binder with a slip-in cover to display the page or printing it on heavier weight paper and then laminating it if you are going to comb-bind it or bind your collection in some other way.
