How to make a family cookbook to give to your daughter or other family members. It’s a beautiful way to save and collect family favorite recipes to pass on to the next generation.
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, but I wanted to make it more personal. I added photos of the two of us along with a few favorite stories of Olivia growing up.

Our Family Cookbook
The cover says it all. 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.
Our whole family loves Chicken Cutlet Italian Style and Chicken Cutlet Parmesan.
This recipe is for the 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.
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.
