I like the book but I would like to make a suggestion. I’m giving this recipe book for a wedding book to my granddaughter and I would love to be able to add pages in the future but the way the book is binded you can’t. I think if you had refill pages and if the book was made to add pages would be a good suggestion.
I love the craftiness of this book. Make it my own. Add in some color. One of my favorite parts is the memories of the dish. A great keepsake!
I got this because I wanted to have a recipe book in my moms handwriting, and everything would be in one place. I loved it so much I got one for friends, and my sister in law! Super cute, well made, can't wait for her to finish the book!
My daughter in law loves this kitchen diary. I wrote many of her favorite recipes in the book.
I don't usually spend this kind of money on something like this but it was worth it. I wanted a cookbook I could start filling for my kids and this is perfect. I love that I can share memories of when the recipe was made. Because I not only get to fill it with mine but my grandmother's recipes who isn't with us anymore. I can already tell I'll be ordering another one.
Great for recording the recipes you want to pass down. Must write small though.
This kitchen diary is super cute. It came packaged very nicely. I can't wait to give it as a gift!
My wife love keepsake things and thought this would be something she would cherish. She loved it and started to mark it up straight away! Has lots of little things within the book. If you're a husband with a wife that cherishes heirlooms, this is a great gift.
Received this as a present from my husband and love it!!! I'm enjoying that it has specific sections for each recipe and a pocket for loose ones
I am not receiving any special deal from reviewing this product. I purchased two on Amazon at full price. I wanted to give my girls a handwritten cookbook of all of our family's favorite recipes. This book is pricey for sure, but it is so well done! It is sturdy and will last for years! It has lots of room for additional recipes to be added as the years go by. The spiral binding is sturdy. It will make a great keepsake to pass down to family members!
I gifted this and put family recipes in before giving. She was over excited about the gift she received. An amazing product.
This beautiful book is exactly what I was looking for. I am not a scrap booker or a very crafty person, but I wanted a beautiful scrap book style journal for my family recipes, and that is exactly what I found here. I can decorate or not as much as I want and it's gorgeous either way. Thank you Lily&Val I love my new kitchen diary!!!
I loved this even more when I opened it. It allows space for personal notes and I love the space for special equipment needed. I put 1 family recipe under each category and gave it to my daughter for Christmas.
Got this as a gift for my best friend and she loves it! In super impressed with the quality. I will be getting this for myself as well!
Recipes for the next Generation I just received my 2 recipe books. They are exactly what I wanted for my son and daughter. I am going to write favorite recipes from myself and my grandmothers for my kids. They can have a copy to pass down to their children. The books are sturdy and have great space to jot down memories or traditions.
I bought this for my adult daughter who will be married soon. She absolutely loved it! It was just what she needed.
Bought this as a gift and they loved it! Very nice quality
Good as a gift or to keep for yourself to write your family recipes & pass it down to your children!
Great Mother's Day gift
The book is nice but not every recipe has a memory. Would like to see the binding be easier to open, it's hard to turn the pages.
Sorry the pictures aren't in order. Tried to include as many details as possible. I'll start by saying, I seen a review of this book on YouTube from 4 years ago. I watched a woman decorate the pages and review it and give helpful tips on how the book can be used. I fell in love with it and it was perfect for what I wanted, so I looked it up. I only waited like 4-5 days to receive it, so it was speedy delivery. My first thoughts were on how many pages this book includes, which is a LOT! There's plenty of space for all of your favorite recipes! I also noticed the scuff mark on the cover of the book. Now to me, it's not much of a disappointment bc honestly I expect to hold onto this book for a very long time. I expect that it will have some wear and tear, so it doesn't really bother me ig. Flipping through the pages, I got exactly what I expected! Very beautiful artwork, nice and neat layout for the pages. You could dress this book up as much as you want or just simply leave as is! I chose to follow the footsteps of the review on YouTube and bought ephemera to decorate with. Great purchase and I would definitely buy again, assuming I fill this book up!
I was working on creating my own binder for recipes. Oddly enough I budgeted almost the same amount of what this binder cost - give or take. This is what I realized - it takes time to put a binder together. Meaning, time to print, cut, punch holes, allign. Then you need to find the perfect clip art, drawings. What if you loose a few pages. I decided to just get this particular binder. Quality, workmanship, details are so perfect! I am so glad that I spent the few extra dollars for something that will last through generations. The workmanship and sturdiness of the binder is something I was looking for. If you are looking for quality - this is a great "investment". And the moments you will need to put the recipes and photos onto the binder = priceless. I use the note section for photos of the recipe - just to give it a nice touch. I am very happy with this binder!
Beautifully made, NOT big enough to actually write recipes out on. Such a bummer because everything else is lovely.
It was a gift for my daughter in-law. She had picked out. She started using it and filling the pages right away.
This recipe book is everything I wanted. I love the color and so glad it is a binder book makes it much easier to keep your place when in use. Plenty of room to write your ingredients and step by step instructions. I am very pleased with my new recipe book.
Lovely book, great for memory recording.
Got this for my mom as a Mother's Day gift. The only thing I regret is not getting one for myself!!! This thing is awesome. Also great to pass down in the family.
It's beautiful! Lots of room for me to write things down. My only complaint is that I don't tend to stick to the format they've given.
My daughter loved this. I purchased it for her 11th birthday. She already has one recipe in it and enjoys decorating the page with fancy writing and coloring in the boarders. I am sure this will be a keepsake for years to come. It is sturdy and very well made.
Love! Love! Love! Wonderful family treasure and so fun to create.
Even better than I expected! I'm writing down family recipes for my niece and going to surprise her with them. She will love this! I love it!
This will be a gift to my nieces wedding.
A genuine keepsake! So unique and special. Fabulous graduation, birthday or wedding gift! Would buy again and again.
Keeping track of my weight watchers receipe's ! Awesome book!
Bought this to keep track of my recipes for my kids one day. So pretty!! A couple of the tabs came bent in the mail but no big deal. Beautiful layout on the pages, my only complaint is that the spaces to write the instructions & ingredients is too small for large recipes with a lot of ingredients or lots of instruction. Overall very happy with this book!!
I purchased two of these for upcoming Christmas gifts - one for my daughter and the other for my fourteen year old grandson.I'm not sure the binding will hold up on them; and I think they're a little costly.However,the content is wonderful and a little more unusual than other cookbook journals of this kind that I've seen; so I decided it was worth it and I'm becoming excited with anticipating them opening this particular package.
The recipe book is outstanding except for the binding. It appears to be sturdy but I ordered 2 (hoping one was the exception) and both bindings were damaged. The second one arrived with the back cover completely detached. I love the book so much that I bent the binding to fix it (kind of) and kept them. It's unfortunate that a book of this quality appears to have been scrimped on with the binding which holds it all together. Both books did arrive in a simple unpadded envelope, so maybe they were damaged in shipment....but both of them?
Ample space for memories and has categories. I really enjoyed having this at Thanksgiving so I could collect recipes from my relatives! Sturdy paper and binding
Such a fun way to record your family favorites!!! I love it!!! Such great quality, perfectly done. It's my favorite ever.
This is exactly what I was looking for and more. I like that I can write my daughter and mine recipe creations with a neighboring page to write dates and reasons why we created saud recipe as well as list all the other times we created it, twicked it, served to others and their opinions. Great way to start a family cookbook
I purchased 2 of these for my daughters. They are little now (10 &7) but I'm adding their favorite recipes to the books (some go back generations!) and I love the ‚Äúmemory‚Äù page where I can include when they first tried the recipe and the special occasions we cooked them on. I plan on gifting these to them when they get older and they get their first home (along with a bunch of kitchen necessities of course!) - The book is sturdy and well laid out. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase!!!
Very happy with this purchase! I've been looking for. Binder for some time that has more room than a typical recipe card. I love the memories side as well, I write down comments made while enjoying the meal as something fun to look back on. It does hold numerous recipes with a very study cover, a nice thick bind, and allows spacing for my bigger loopy handwriting! Worth the price and will be purchasing more for gifts!
Love love love this! It's not only very cute but it seems very durable. It's great quality and is so much more than just a recipe book. Has fun pages for you to track memories with your recipes. Great purchase would highly recommend! The only thing was that it wasn't packaged well for shipping. The spiraled binding was fairly bent when it arrived but it was easy to push back into the correct place.
I love it, it worth every penny, I am a food blogger and this is perfect, study
Gave these as a gift to my best girlfriend .. she was over the moon!!
Best cookbook!! My husband bought this for me before we got married. I have so many sweet memories of cooking in the kitchen with my nana and continue to make more as I cook for my husband, family, and friends. This book is beautifully laid out. I have enjoyed writing down specific sweet/funny memories each time I make a recipe!! I highly recommend this book to the sentimental :) Worth every penny.
Love this recipe book. I only wish they had more space for the recipe itself. Maybe less space for the memories
Love this! Great detail on pages! Love to make the memories on the pages ..cooking with family
I purchased this to give as a present to a family with young children. It is adorable! Very well made. A lot of pages with fun details to fill in. It's a great keepsake for families that will take the time to fill out a page here and there over the years. It's also great quality. It's a bit expensive but worth it for a unique and quality gift!
I give it 4 stars because it's not enough room to write all the directions. I'll have to use the memories side to write the rest. My suggestion is to had more space to write on.
Absolutely love this.
Helps one organize recipes
Excellent way to keep those loved recipes in a keepsake to pass on to future family.
Perfect Christmas present for my BF's mom, she was already rattling off relative recipes she was going to add to it! Can't go wrong gifting this to someone, it's cute and a unique twist on a cookbook.
This product is SO perfect! Cute & exactly what I was looking for.
I bought this mainly because I wanted to get down my family's recipes. When my father died a decade ago I didn't have any of the recipes he had made for years and I didn't want that to happen to my mother's and my in-laws recipes. This is also great for all the recipes I've picked up from cookbooks and online. I tend to doctor recipes a lot and it sucks when I lose my notes and have to try to remember additions off the top of my head. If you like writing, organizing and journaling I think you will probably love this book. The only criticisms I can think of is the main courses section is kind of small (so I've got to put additional ones elsewhere) and there is no beverage section (but you can always put them in misc too I suppose).
There isn't a lot of room for recipe directions.
Wonderful purchase for my daughters family consumer science class to write her forever recipes in.
Love the pages
This made for the perfect gift for my best friend!
I love all of the pages and how it is organized. However, the back cover was completely off the book when it arrived. I was able to get it back on, but it definitely looks like it has been abused. As it was intended as a gift, I am returning it. I would like to replace it, but it appears to be a design flaw with the binding so I imagine the next one will do the same thing. I am so disappointed. If it wasn't so expensive already, I may have kept it and rebound it myself, but you shouldn't have to do that with a $40 book..
I absolutely love this cookbook!! It is better than i thought it would be. I got it 3 days ago and i have been slowly working on filling it up with all my recipes. IF I fill it up which is a big if because it is alot bigger then i thought which is awesome i will definately be buying another one!!
I love this book!!!! When completed this will make a great keepsake for my son. I love the format. There is plenty of room to write and I like the spiral bound format.
Just what wanted.
