How To Make Your Own Cookbook for Fun and Profit

How to make a cookbook

Ever thought of putting your favorite recipes into a beautiful book you can give as a gift or pass down the generations? Maybe you’re famous for your pet treats and you’ve always thought about creating your own cookbook to sell or give to friends and family, but never knew how to get started!

Blurb is a company that lets anyone create beautiful books from their favorite content, and get those books shipped in any quantity (even just one copy). Not a designer? That’s OK, Blurb’s free BookSmart software is an easy route to a great cookbook.

What’s the best way to get started? Holding off a bit. It’s tempting to want to dive right in, but thinking a bit and getting organized is worth it in the end. Make the most of your time by dividing each step into chunks so you can tackle them at different points in your book-making process.

And here we go:

1. Organize: Gather your recipes and do a process of elimination. Once you’ve narrowed your favorites down, you can gather accompanying images—just make sure you’re giving the recipe and image files the same name to make it easier when it’s time to upload. Keep everything in one folder on your computer.

2. Flow it: Next, determine how you want your cookbook story to flow. Do you want to sort your recipes by age, popularity, or even something else? Once you’ve determined the order, you’ll have done the bulk of your creative decision-making.

3. Get the tool: Download our free book-making tool, BookSmart, choose your book size (Standard Portrait and Standard Landscape are the most popular for cookbooks) and input your title and author name. Then choose “Cookbook” as your starting point — this will give you the best layouts for the job. Then pick a source for your images — from iPhoto, your computer, even Flickr or Picasa. Lastly, choose a theme. Now you’re ready to put together your cookbook.

4. Lay it out: This is where the real book-making comes in. BookSmart will provide you with 20 pages in our standard recipe layout, but you’ll find plenty of alternate layouts in the “Choose page layout” panel on the upper left. You can also add additional pages ­­— including photo pages — by clicking “Add Pages” in the top toolbar.

5. Just add copy: Our layouts provide space for stories, introductions, and those all-important ingredients and directions. Paste in your copy and you’re golden. Then garnish with photos. Don’t forget to run BookSmart’s spell check feature.

6. Preview and review: Click “Review book” and go through page by page. If you’re not a natural-born proofreader, ask a friend to take a second look.

7. Order: Make any last minute edits, click “Order,” and follow the prompts to checkout. Remember to order extra copies for friends and family—or sell it in our Bookstore. Order now and save 15% on all print book orders through April 30th with code TAKE15%.

Nutrisystem Update Week 30: Cooking At Home + Getting Close To Our Goals!

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

We’re cooking with Nutrisystem! If you’re just joining us, the hubby and I have been losing weight together on the Nutrisystem program. Each week, we post a new update and share tips,  info about our experiences, let you know about the program, and tell you how much we’ve lost so far.

Cooking at Home with Nutrisystem

After 30 weeks on Nutrisystem we’re headed into our final month with the program. I’m sad already, and a little stressed about how we’re going to manage without having everything pre-made and pre-measured for us, but the awesome folks over at Nutrisystem have got us covered! They’ve got a great cookbook filled with recipes, ideas and helpful tips on how to cook at home. It’s designed especially for Nutrisystem members who are making the transition from program meals to cooking for themselves again, but it’s got healthy recipes that everyone can enjoy!

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be alternating between the Nutrisystem packaged meals, and some tasty new meals from the cookbook that we’ll cook for ourselves as we begin to transition off the program. We’ve already gone through and bookmarked a bunch of yummy looking ideas including Vietnamese Beef Soup, Smoked Salmon and Dill with Pasta Salad, and several breakfast and dessert recipes. Each recipe looks super easy to follow, and lists everything we need to know to stay on track, including Calories, and the Nutrisystem Equivalent. For example, the beef soup is 260 calories and counts as 1 Nutrisystem Lunch Enter + 1 PowerFuel. We’re just getting started with our grocery list and organizing our schedule, so stay tuned!

We’re Getting Close to Our Weight Loss Goals!

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how I was setting some new mini goals for myself including pushing myself a bit more with the exercise. I’m still doing my daily walks with Daisy but have added in some extra days of cardio using my favorite Zumba Workout DVDs and also the Walking Cardio Shape Up Max exercise video from trainer Chris Freytag. I used to do them quite frequently but the extra weight I was carrying made it really hard on my knees so I’d stopped for a while. As with most things, I’m finding these workouts to be easier now that I’m a bit lighter.  And it looks like bumping up the cardio is starting to pay off. This week’s weigh in was a great one…I’ve lost 2.2 pounds for a total of 34 pounds lost so far! I’m now EXACTLY 10 pounds from my goal…YAY!

The hubby has been running and started increasing his distance and speed using a cool phone app called Runkeeper, and is even thinking about training for his first Half Marathon! He’s lost another 2.4 pounds this week…that means he’s less than 3 pounds away from reaching his goal! I’m jealous he’ll get there first but I know I’m not far behind and will get there eventually!
