Family Cookbook Ideas – here are a few ways to create a family cookbook to give to your daughter or other family members. This project works nicely with the Kitchen Art from Old Family Recipe Cards project I created a few years ago. They’re both a beautiful way to save and collect family favorite recipes to pass on to the next generation and make GREAT GIFTS!
I gave my daughter the perfect gift for her bridal shower…a family cookbook filled with all her favorite recipes. MixBook works GREAT with helping you organize your recipes and create a family heirloom to pass on to your family!
This family cookbook was not only easy to put together, it was fast. Which was good because I thought of making this cookbook for Olivia only 2 weeks before her bridal shower. Nothing like waiting for the last minute, right?
I have so many of Olivia’s favorite recipes already posted here on my blog , so putting the cookbook together was pretty easy. I wanted to make it personal so I created a Shutterfly Cookbook.
Included in the cookbook are recipes, stories and I added photos of the two of us as Olivia was growing up.

Shutterfly Recipe Book
Here’s the cover of the Shutterfly Cook Book. A collection of recipes shared from Mother to Daughter.
The first page included a special note to Olivia and a few photos of the two of us together. I love the first photo of us together from her third birthday party.
One of her favorite soups, my recipe for Loaded Potato Soup Recipe
This recipe is for the Crescent Roll Fruit Tart that I have been making for her birthday for years now. Also included is a photo of her Olivia taken on her 5th birthday and on her 20th birthday.
Her favorite cookie recipe, Peanut Butter Blossoms, made with three types of chocolate candies.
And finally here’s a photo of Olivia and I together at the shower. Putting this cookbook together was so much fun and I know it’s something Olivia will treasure.
