Celebrate Thanksgiving and family traditions by creating a custom family "Thanksgiving Cookbook".
Next >>

This Thanksgiving, take pictures of each favorite family dish as well as the family member that helped create/prepare it. You might also collect pictures from previous Thanksgivings or scan in favorite family recipe cards to include in your "Thanksgiving Cookbook". Be sure to save any pictures or documents that you scan as high resolution .jpg images.

Next, collect the recipes that you would like to include in your cookbook. Write out each recipe in a Word document which will allow you to spell check the text before you copy and paste it into your Picaboo book.

After you have gathered together all of your pictures and recipes, create a new book in Picaboo using the Cookbook Theme. This theme will fill your book with the specially designed cookbook page layout. This page layout gives you space to include a small picture of the dish, the title of the recipe, the number of servings, the cooking time, the list of ingredients, the directions, and a special comment about the recipe.

To include other family pictures and recipe cards, simply add additional pages throughout the cookbook with layouts that allow multiple photos. Customize your cookbook with Thanksgiving Backgrounds and fun corners.

When you are finished, you will be able to share your "Thanksgiving Cookbook" with relatives that are far away, and everyone will have a lasting family keepsake.
