NOW We're Cooking

This is the coolest thing. I've been telling Dr. Daddy for years now that I would love to have one book that contained all of my favorite recipes. Family recipes, recipes that I've torn out of magazines and love to cook, recipes from my favorite cookbooks...all in one place and easy to access.

Well, it is. Once again, a "why didn't I think of that?" moment. is a new website that allows you to create your own cookbook.

There are four ways to do it:

1: Browse TasteBooks created by top cookbook authors and food editors.
2: Add your own personal recipes and photos to your TasteBook.
3: Search over 50,000 original recipes from top recipe sites.
4: Import your Epicurious recipes to TasteBook or upload a software recipe file from your computer.

Hardcover book with Easy-open binder makes it simple to add recipes anytime. You can add personal recipes and photos. Choose a cover and write your own title. You can organize your recipes any way you want with ten tabbed chapters. Add helpful hints, cooking tips, and personal notes to any recipe.
Plus, it's the perfect gift! You can create a TasteBook as a special gift for bridal showers, family reunions, and holidays.

I have had so much fun putting together this book! I can't wait to give them to family members for Christmas. What a great way to create a lasting family heirloom. Not to mention the kitchen drawer space you'll save after you've cleaned out all those old, stained, wrinkled recipes from years gone by.

I've added many of my favorites to my book so far, but I'll be adding more soon. Take a look! Then get started on your own.

You can do better than that...I know you can!
Please start thinking of something brilliant, so I can be your PR wench and we can have a reality show on BRAVO. Okay?

I've been wanting to do this for years! I've been trying to collect all of my mom's recipes that she made while we were growing up and make it into a book as a christmas gift for my siblings growing up! Love this!

The recipes you used in the cookbook look delicious! I have always wanted to have a better way to organize my recipes.
