Turn Them Into Gifts Scan handwritten recipes and have them engraved or printed on a cutting board, an apron, a tea towel, a mug, a plaque or another thoughtful gift. This is a great way to preserve a bit of history in an item that can be used or displayed daily.
How do you ask for recipes for a wedding gift?
The one thing I did for myself — something just for me — was to create custom RSVP cards that asked all of our guests to share a favorite recipe. The card read: “The back of the card is blank for you to share a favorite family recipe with the soon-to-be newlyweds, if you like.”
How do you give a cookbook as a gift?
Wrapping up a cookbook can be a creative and fun gift. Wrap a cookbook up in a dish towel and tuck a utensil in the bow. Seal up a cookbook in a cake pan or slow cooker. Slip a cookbook in a gift bag along with a gift card for a local grocery store.
How do I digitize my recipes?
Download a mobile scanning app. With an app like Adobe Scan, all you need to do is take a photo of your recipe and the app will scan it into a PDF right from your phone. Convert your handwriting. You can convert any handwritten scans into more legible documents through the scanning app, too.
How do you preserve handwritten recipes?
While cooking, put recipes in clear polyester film sleeves to protect them from food spills and greasy fingerprints. Another option is to use a preservation-quality loose-leaf binder style album filled with polyester page protectors into which the recipes can be filed and easily accessed.
What do you write in the front of a cookbook?
Title Page. The title page is the first page of your cookbook with text on it. It usually contains the title of the book at a minimum. It can also have the name of the author, the sub head, and sometimes an illustration or photograph.
