Be Creative: Tips & Tricks for your Cookbook Kit

Filed under: cookbook ideas, cookbook kits, tips & tricks — Kate @ 2:44 pm

Secret Ingredients’ new Cookbook Kits give you flexibility to make a cookbook fun, personal, and exactly as you want it!

Here are some ways to make your cookbook pages fun:

    • Fonts: Have fun with your fonts!  There are a lot of free font sites on the internet, so if you would like to expand your collection do a quick search. 
    • Digital Photos and Clipart:  Word processing programs let you add photos and clipart to your pages easily!  Why not adding a gold star next to all the healthy recipes?
    • Page Borders: Add borders to your recipe pages to give it an extra touch.
    • Stories: Add family stories, favorite quotes, and recipe tips to your pages.
    • Photographs: You may add photographs to your dividers by applying glue or sticker dots to the back of the printed photograph. 

The possibilities are endless!  If you are looking for an expandable cookbook project, our kits are the perfect answer.  You can add pages as you find great recipes

If you have questions or would like to hear more information about our new kits, please email us at

Have a great weekend!

Family Cookbook on Flickr

Filed under: cookbook ideas, cookbook kits, family cookbook — Kate @ 5:28 pm

Everyone has a list of favorite websites. I don’t know what I’d do without my favorite blogs, YouTube, Flickr, Craigslist, Google News, and of course Secret Ingredients! They are my daily dose of entertainment, places I go when I need to be informed, inspired, or just need a good laugh.

Lately, I have come across some really neat photographs of original, handmade family cookbooks on Flickr. Check them out:

If you would like to make a cookbook your way, be sure to check out our new Cookbook Kits.  They offer full flexibility.  You can make your own recipes pages however you would like- using your home computer. 

Have a great day,
