Introducing my favorite blank recipe book!
For many years I have written recipes down on bits of paper here there and everywhere. My favorite dishes from a magazine, from friends and many from the internet.
It became so bad that I couldn’t find recipes when I needed them. Then one day after hunting for my most delicious cake recipe (mmmm) that I couldn’t for the life of me find, I realized I really needed to DO something about the situation.
As always my search started on amazon. Many blank recipe books, yes, but not one that was pretty and that appealed to me. I decided to use my skill set and make my own pretty and functional blank recipe book.

When the book arrived I was so happy!! I made myself a cuppa sat down at the kitchen table and unpacked the little bits of paper in easy reach and started writing. I also used my color pens.
My son also joined me and was drawing maps of some sort which explains why I have a map in the image below. haha!
File away those awesome recipes you find online, in magazines or write them into this blank recipe book to preserve a loved cookbook from being tattered by being over used.
Cherish passed down family recipes! This book also makes a great gift to anyone who cooks or bakes.
“A blank recipe book to keep the bits of paper you seem to collect as well as family recipes that need a more permeant home.”
When you open the black recipe book the first thing you will notice if that I have included a bunch measurement conversions. Because I come from a country that uses C instead of F as most recipes on the internet are I am always having to look these things up! Now I have an entire list of easy converted numbers. YAY!
The blank cookbook is divided into sections that you can label as any section you need! (Main Dishes, Snacks etc). It features an index for recipe names with page numbers so you can easily find what you need, each section also has a different color built in tab to get to your recipe fast. With 200 pages the blank recipe book will easily hold 180 recipes.
The layout is pretty easy to use too! There is a space for the name of your recipe and I also added some stars you can grade it by. There is a nutritional area which I thought was a good idea to add even if I currently don’t use it 😉 You never know I might one day.
I made the serves number, prep time, oven temp and cook time have their own section. These are important for me to have a quick glance at.
I have all the ingredients down one side and the directions on the other. Now if you have one of those super lengthy recipes be sure to start on the left side of the book so you can continue the recipe onto the right hand side.
I found it also handy to have a notes section. I add things like try raisins with this or I got this recipe from fillmyrecipebook.com type thing. Always good to know info.
BUY: Fill My Recipe Book (amazon)
These make perfect gifts as well! (christmas! shh!!)
I decided to list the book on amazon just incase someone else was also looking for a pretty blank recipe book! 😉
I love it and I know you will too!
