5 Reasons you should Invest in Blank Recipe books

5 Reasons you should Invest in Blank Recipe books

1. You have a drawer in your kitchen full of unorganized recipes.
2. Takes you more time to find a recipe then it does to prepare it.
3. Always can use more drawer space in your kitchen.
4. To keep traditional family recipes in.
5. To pass family recipes down to your children.

I have sold an assortment of books to Mothers who are personally going to write their own favorite recipes in, and give them to their children as a keepsake. What a great idea. I would've love to have my Mothers personal favorites.
