Customizing Your Family Cookbook Project

One of the things that we are most proud of at is the ability to give complete control of every aspect of making a cookbook to the project’s editor. We provide professionally designed options that are perfect for most people, but some have visions of something different.

Here are some of the things that you can customize went creating your family cookbook project:

  1. Recipe CategoriesWe provide 8 basic recipe categories that organize your recipes into types of meal. By using our custom category tool, you can add different categories or change them altogether. For example, if you wanted to create a dessert cookbook, the categories would all be dessert related. We’ve also seen people organize their recipe sections by family member.
  2. Recipe Dividers – Dividers are the pages that separate the recipe categories. We proved several simple black and white divider options but if you want to create your own, or add photos, you can. However remember to leave space for the name of the category to be displayed.
  3. Cookbook Cover Рa custom cover was the third most popular cover option last year. Some people simply have a white cover with a photo, others with graphic design skills create beautiful designs to personalize  their cookbook. Creativity knows no limit with Family Cookbook Project.
  4. Recipe Layout – The recipe layout controls the font and size of the recipe text. You can control each section independently – title, contributor name, ingredients, directions and personal notes.

Over the next few weeks, we will go into each of these customization options in more detail.
