It would be a great Christmas or Hanukkah gift to give to your family. Just collect favorite family recipes and add photos and antidotes about the food. Ways to "publish" could be:
- You could do this simply by scanning them into a word processing program and printing them from your computer. Then place in sheet protector sheets and into a binder with a nice cover.
- Have a copy center print out the pages and use a nice binding system.
- Upload to a photo service place (like Costco, Shutterfly, etc) and have the book printed with a soft or hard cover.
My mother did something like this for each of her children when they married. This was all before computers and she typed the recipes onto pretty colored paper. Then using a store-bought photo album, added photos of each of us as children along with the recipes. It is such a nice treasure. Here is an example of a recipe:
