Mary Sullivan runs an online shop called Karate Kat Graphics as a collaboration with her children and donates half of every dollar earned through the shop to children’s charities — Save the Children is this year’s charity. She has put together a tutorial about how to make a family cookbook and asked me to create a full page (8 1/2″ x 11″) printable recipe template that can be used to create a personal cookbook, and I was happy to oblige!
Update: I’ve added a version of the recipe page that has editable form fields, so you can type in your recipes and send them to family and friends via email! Download this version below.
As we head into the holiday season, many of us are thinking more about food and tradition and are planning on putting together a family cookbook of our own to give as a gift or to use in our own kitchens. You can download the template and use it to help create your own cookbooks.
Download the original recipe page template (188 Kb PDF). Download the recipe page with editable form fields (165 Kb). Use File > Save As when you’re saving the editable version of the recipe page, and rename it (example: Chocolate-Chip-Cookies.pdf) so you don’t overwrite the original template. You will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader to download and use these files. Download the reader for free here. These templates are for personal, non-commercial use only.
