Recipe Book Idea

Cara showed her book at her cooking group the other week and I was thinking that this might make for a good post here too.

These are half page sized recipe books. My mother in law made me one with their family recipes a few years back and I loved it so much I made my own with my recipes. I also made one for my sister in law when she and my brother got married that had recipes from both families which I thought was a fun idea. Could also make for a fun Christmas present too since that is coming up.

These tabs (below) are handy to mark with recipes I use a lot or with ones that I am planning on making that week.

Here are a few of the dividers:

Hi Heather,
Love your recipe book. I think I just might have to make one. Since it's half sized, in Word, Did you have to change any of the settings??

Set your page setup to landscape and make two columns - each column will be one page in your recipe book. When you print them off, you fold each page in half and slip them into the sheet protectors. The sheet protectors were a little hard to find at stores, but I found them at several places online.
