Happy 5*th

This post is dedicated to my dad. He turned 5* today. Happy Birthday dad!I have been working on my own recipe book for the past year or so. I used to just print my recipes, and put them in a 3-ring binder. The problem was that pretty soon the recipes got disorganized, and I had a bunch of loose recipes. Also, They weren't organized well, and they were all in different formats.

During my research on the internet, I found a lot companies that would print your recipes in book format. Then I found Tastebook. This company prints the recipes on individual pages, that go in a binder. So in essence, it's the same as my binder, but they have great formatting, plus it just looks a thousand times better. You can upload your own photos, and put in any notes and details you want.

It took me a while, because at first I wanted to add only my own pictures. When that took too long, I just hunted around on the internet for photos that looked like my recipes. So far, I have 63 recipes. When you order a book from Tastebook, you can order a 100-page book, and just add additional pages later. I am really excited, and think this will help me with my menu planning too.

Your recipe book sounds cool. I use a binder too because I often rip recipes out of magazines that I want to keep. I hope this works well for you.
