My Experience Using CreateMyCookbook
Anything that allows me to create something unique is a fun one! It’s easy to upload your recipes and photos using their cookbook designer.
If you have handwritten recipes, CreateMyCookbook has a feature called WeTypeIt where they will type the recipe for you, and in 1 to 2 days the recipe will be in your account, ready to place into your cookbook.
You’ll have the chance to choose binding styles, paper type, review your proofs and then order your cookbook.
When I received my cookbook I posted a picture of it on my Facebook page and many people assumed I published a cookbook for sale! It does look pretty professional and it’s kind of a dream of mine to one day have a published cookbook. But I’m not there yet.
I chose the Hardback Wire-O book option with Rite in the Rain paper option.
As a cookbook collector I had a lot of fun making this personalized cookbook. I will proudly display this cookbook in my cookbook library for years to come. Plus, CreateMyCookbook saves your cookbooks in your account so you can easily order more copies later to give as gifts or make updates to it in the future. And speaking of gifts…
I purchased an additional copy to give as a gift to my mother for Christmas. She is probably my number 2 fan, coming in second to my husband of course. ☺️ For her book I selected the Hardback Casebound book with the Premium Glossy Paper.
But this cookbook isn’t just a gift for her but a gift for me as well. These recipes are family favorites and I know I’ll be grabbing this cookbook off the shelf for years to come.
