Our job at Family Cookbook Project is to make the process of creating your own personal cookbook as easy as possible for you, our editors.
That’s why we recently added the “How-To” section of FamilyCookbookProject.com with step-by-step directions to some of your most common requests. You’ll find it the second option in the black navigation bar along the top of every page of the site.
However we also know that seeing can be easier to understand that reading. That is why we offer the Family Cookbook Project YouTube Channel.
We have started creating a series of video walk throughs to help you see how some of the tools are used in FamilyCookbookProject.com.
