One of the best gifts I ever received was a recipe book from my grandmother containing instructions for how to make all of her favorite and best-loved dishes. I know she spent hours on the book, handwriting every recipe from memory.
Now, there’s a way that grandmothers, moms, amateur chefs and others who love to cook can preserve their favorite recipes and share them with others in just minutes. It’s called TasteBook. All of your favorite recipes are bound into a hardcover book that looks as professional as anything you’d buy at the bookstore, plus you can add your own notes and photos! Don’t have enough of your own recipes to fill out the book? You can search up to 25,000 original recipes from Bon Appetit and Gourmet. From a quick scan of the site, it appears that your typical TasteBook costs about $35. I’m thinking about making them for birthday and Christmas gifts this year.
