The first and most important step in beginning a group project is deciding who will be the leader, or in this case, the Head Chef. As the old saying goes, you don't need too many cooks in the kitchen.

A Family Cookbook to Treasure for Generations

Have you or anyone in your family ever considered putting together a family cookbook? Putting together a family recipe book is an idea that's just beginning to take off. As more and more cookbook publishers make cookbook publishing easier than ever before, creating a cook book is something everyone can do regardless of skill level.

When you and your group create a family cookbook, you'll actually be creating a personalized cookbook. Before your group begins creating a cook book, you'll want to dig out the family recipe book that's full of those family recipes that have been passed down through generations, as well as any other recipe scrapbooks. And everyone should dig out their family scrapbook and family photos, too.

These are the items the group is going to use to help assemble the family cookbook. Part of what makes cookbook publishing so different and such a great group activity is knowing that every member of your group will contribute family photos and family recipes to the personalized cookbook.

Family Recipe Book = Family Cook Book

Imagine how much fun it will be for you and your family to build a family cookbook together! As you become involved in creating a family recipe book, and looking through old family scrap books, you'll find that some of the recipes you share together will bring up warm memories, or moments you'll all have a laugh over!

When you're finished creating your cookbook, envision how proud you will be when you show off the family recipe book at the next family reunion!

family cookbook - Your Cookbook Publishers

Before starting, look for cookbook publishers that offer an online cook book development environment. That way it'll be easier for group members to stay in touch. An online cook book development environment makes it easy for group members to contribute their favorite family scrapbook and recipe scrapbook entries. Once all entries have been entered, - your cookbook publishing company - will handle the rest.

Friends Can Help Too

Your group doesn't have to be made up of family members. You can gather together a group of friends and create a "friends" cookbook instead. Cookbook publishers love working with social groups because this makes the cookbook diverse and interesting. Rather than using family photos, the group can choose photos of special times together and they can still refer to family scrapbooks and recipe scrapbooks for recipe ideas.

Creating a friends cookbook, a family cookbook, or a family recipe book truly has never been easier! Let's get started today!
