How many cookbooks do you have?
For most of us can love to cook, collecting cookbooks is a fact of life. We are always looking for the next great recipe and publish cookbooks are often a great resource.
However for many of us there are only a handful of go to recipes in any given cookbook. They sit in our kitchen, taking up space, waiting for the time we need to make that one recipe.
Well here’s a way two clean out your kitchen from all those cookbooks and put those recipes into a single, easy to use source for your favorite cookbook recipes – a compilation cookbook.
Since a premium membership with family cookbook project allows you to create multiple cookbooks at the same time, it is easy to create a special cookbook dedicated to the recipes that are in all of your other cookbooks.
When adding the recipe to your compilation cookbook, you can use the contributor field to list the cookbook where you originally found the recipe.
You should also be sure to mark your recipe private so it is not shared outside of your own cookbook account.
Family cookbook project also offers a handy recipe transfer tool for when you want to move some of those compilation recipes into your main cookbook without having to type them a second time.
Once you have entered your go to recipes into your compilation cookbook, you can then remove the original cookbook from your kitchen, freeing up space, and find a bookshelf somewhere else in the house where are you can collect your cookbooks without taking up kitchen space.
