I've thought about doing this for years, usually around November, with grand plans to have them done for Christmas...another failed plan! This year I'm committed to making one (or 20), and am starting now, with a November completion my goal. Have you ever created a "semi-professional" looking cookbook? There are quite a few software applications that can be purchased for this. Did you use one, and did you tell your relatives about it to get their recipes, or try to be sneaky about it? Share your ideas and experience. Christmas will be here sooner than usual this year!!
