I was the only one at work who could keep up with a recipe. I always wrote the name of the person that gave me the recipe on the card or sheet or whatever it was jotted down on. Same with recipes I had received from my mother, family reunions, etc. Co-workers would call me to go find their own recipes ’cause they knew I had kept my copy. One Christmas I got the idea to take that drawer full of recipes & put them in a cookbook format. I called each recipe by the party who had originally made it such as Cheryl Pearson’s Cheeseball. If I remembered I noted at the end of the recipe where & when it was served. "Cheryl served this at the family reunion in 1996" or "Enjoyed this at the Wildcat Post-Game Party after winning the North Championship".
Anyway, I gave these as Christmas gifts to my co-workers, hubby’s staff, family & friends. It actually saved me money that Christmas. The printing cost worked out to about $7 per book. I have since given them as wedding gifts. I’ve never sold one, because they are not my recipes to sell. My church talked me into putting one in the fall bazaar & auction. Went for over $50.
I add new recipes as I receive them & I’ve printed updated editions without much trouble.
Anybody can do this. Just clean out your recipe drawer, box, etc.
