Recipes are a tradition that should be passed on to each generation. Although many a family food treasure can be lost forever with each passing of a family member. Many baby boomers are working to create a printed family cookbook to collect and preserve their favorite mealtime treasures.
Once a labor-intensive task, now families are using the Internet to simplify the project. A website can provide step by step instructions and tools to help the family member serving as cookbook editor to contact others and encourage them to enter their favorite recipes directly into the online system. The editor then simply reviews and edits the recipes, selects design options, and sends the cookbook to be printed. The finished printed cookbooks are received in a few weeks time.
