Here are some comments we have received from customers about Family Cookbook Project that we wanted to share.
I’ve also included some of the wonderful photos our editors have submitted with photos of them and their cookbooks. The photos do not necessarily go with the quote they appear with.
Comments from Family Cookbook Editors
The personal notes for each recipe was a big plus for me to share where I got the recipe from and some personal history. Thanks for letting me do this.
–Kathy Goding, The Goding Family Cookbook 2022
I used your website to construct a family cookbook for my son who is getting married. Now my 5 sisters and sister-in-laws want a copy of the cookbook for themselves and their daughters/granddaughters! I had so much fun with this project and the finished book was awesome. Just wanted to thank you so much for having such a user-friendly site that I could use.
— Cheryl Wallace, Burlend Family Cookbook
What a truly wonderful experience. I have always wanted to do my own cookbook and Family Cookbook Project made it not only possible, but easy!! I am proud of the way the cover turned out. That is actually my mom’s recipe box and cards, many of them are well over 50 years old! Preserved now for our entire family’s use, thanks to Family Cookbook Project.
–Donna Ferrante, Mom’s Big Book of Recipes
Love the cookbook. It exceeded my expectations. Very fast delivery. I recommend this company to all my friends.
— Helen Schendel, The Wilhelm Family Cookbook
Wow! This is SO perfect! I am now a lifetime member and will be able to preserve recipes for both sides of my family and pass them down to my children as well.
— Tamera Williams-Long, The Williams Family Cookbook Project
I can’t begin to tell you how pleased I am with my cookbook! When I decided to try and put together some recipes for my family., was sure it was an impossible task. I also be
lieved the old adage that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks”. Thanks to you and this wonderful program, it was completed with ease.
— Merilyn S Johnson, The Johnson Family Cookbook Happy Memories
I have really enjoyed locating and entering our recipes into your program. It has been a wonderful initiation of conversation and memory sharing with family members that we’ve not had much contact with recently.
— Ina Woodruff, Woodruff Family Tree Cookbook
My son is getting married and we thought it will be a great idea to give him the family recipes but most of the recipes are in Spanish because I was born in Uruguay and my parents are from Spain.
That’s when I found you! I can’t be happier with the results. My son and his wife love it. Thank you for the work you did in helping me with this project .
–Maria Minor, The Monir Family Cookbook
Thank you so much for my cookbooks! They were perfect! I ordered 150 cookbooks and I am very pleased.
It was so easy to work with your program online. Local printers couldn’t compete with your price!
–Tonya Dee Miller, Dee’s Delights Cookbook
The cookbooks arrived and I couldn’t be happier! Very well done! Thank you both very much for your help. I am spreading the word, and I do believe several people may be using your program to make their own cookbook. 😊
–Paula W, Graham Wedding Cookbook
My Family Cookbook is a work in progress. I still find recipes that my family enjoys, so I add them to the Cookbook. I cook for a dozen eaters, so recipes are mostly for those qualities so that I don’t have to double or triple a recipe.
–Tina Huemmer, Huemmer Family Cookbook
I wanted to find a way to make a cookbook for future generations of our family. I started entering them into a folder on my laptop. What a frustrating process. My daughter found Family Cookbook Project, gave it to me for a Mother’s Day Present. After that it was so easy & took no time to get the project done. I sent a message out to family members then entered everyone’s email address in and we had a cookbook in just a few months. What a terrific idea. My families are so happy to have all their recipes in one book. I love this so much I am thinking of doing another cookbook.
–Joanette Stillman, Family Cookbook 2020
I was so frustrated having to sort through a box of recipes to find the one I needed. After researching different software and reading the reviews – I feel this was the right choice for me. It was difficult to operate once I started using it. Afterwards it was so easy. I look forward to the tips provided and new features offered. By preparing this cookbook for my family – until their ready to enjoy cooking for their own families. I have left a legacy for them to enjoy in the future. I no longer have to sort through paper recipes, and have a box of shame. Now it’s all electronic and with a push of a few buttons – it’s on my computer screen. Thank you.

My greatest moment was while doing research I found out my great Aunt was a cook nun for the Notre Dame order of nuns. When she retired to the convent in Waterdown Ontario she became their baker. I had the privilege of visiting the convent and took pictures of her personal cookbook.
–Yvonne, Cronin Family Cookbook
When my daughter got engaged I wanted to have a collection of family recipes to give as a gift to her. It took me several months to gather and enter several hundred recipes, but I got it done, had it printed and presented it to her at her bridal shower. She teared up she was so moved.
–Jeannie , The Wally Family Cooks
I like being able to add recipes when it’s convenient and add a photo. Along with typing the preparation in my desired layout. Years ago I produced a 4 generation family cookbook. I had to pay for them to type in. This is a much better format. We have just started the project and look forward to seeing our family recipes all together and preserved for our young children. Also, we love that if we’re grocery shopping we can look up a recipe and make sure we have not forgot any ingredients. Don’t hesitate to start your cookbook your family will be grateful for all the recipes and memories you preserved.
–Marty, Happy Cooking Memories!
A wonderful walk down memory lane for both my wife and me. As we wrote the recipes and their connection to us , we agreed it was an awesome project to take on and share these wonderful memories with our children and grandchildren !
I created “Angie’s Family Cookbook” for my kids and nephews as they head off to college and to living on their own so that they could have all the family recipes they need. I have collected recipes from 5 generations of our family that the kids know and love. It is our family history, and I loved sharing it with them.
— Angela, Angie’s Family Cookbook
This was a great experience for my family. I had everyone contribute and I tried out every recipe before it made it in the final version.
— Alison, Davis Family Cookbook
My daughter-in-law begged me for years to give her all my old Italian and Portuguese recipes that were handed down from my relatives. I finally decided to do it, so I researched a dozen sites that offered cookbook programs. I actually started a book on two of them…but finally gave up. They were difficult to maneuver, impossible to edit, and low on the totem pole with customer service. Thank goodness I finally found The Great Family Cookbook Project! It is well organized, has lots of options, customer service is great if you ever need it (not likely) … and SO easy to use that when I gave the first version to my daughter-in-law last Christmas, I actually had to LIE to tell her how hard I worked to put it together!
This is just a hand full of the wonderful comments that our editors have provided to us. We will be adding additional comments down the road.
