My Cookbook Came! CreateMyCookbook Gift Idea!

This post is sponsored by CreateMyCookbook, all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

A few weeks ago, I mentioned how I was working on compiling my recipes into one book with CreateMyCookbook. My book came in the mail a week or so ago, and I was blown away by the quality of the book. For a lot of the pictures, I just saved old ones from my blog that were several years old, and slightly poor quality, and even those pictures which I imagined weren't going to print well, surprisingly looked really good for what they were. (Please don't go back three years ago and look at my old and very poor photography skills!) 

Since having this book, there have been several times where I've gone into the kitchen to cook dinner, and I've been so happy to have this book ready and waiting for me, instead of having to look up a recipe from my blog, and use my laptop or phone in the kitchen. This book really brings me joy every time I use it! 


Like I mentioned in my post about making your own cookbook, this is such a great gift idea for parents to give to their older kids, or for grandparents to give to their kids and grandchildren. For me, cooking really is all about family, and passing down part of your legacy, and family traditions through food. I really am grateful to have some of our family recipes compiled into one place, and that I'll be able to give this book to my kids when they're older and leave home too. 


If you're still in the market for an awesome Christmas gift this year, there is still time for you to login and make your own cookbook before Christmas with CreateMyCookbook's easy recipe software. You can type and upload the recipes yourself, or take a picture of your recipe cards and let them do the typing for you! I love the idea of having a family cookbook, especially since this is a gift that will last far beyond when the holiday season is over. 

Thank you for supporting the brands that make this blog possible.
