FIND OF THE WEEK // Publishing Your Own Cookbook

A few years ago I self-published my own cookbook. It’s called Old, New, Borrowed and Bleu and features my favorite recipes as well as all of our treasured family recipes. At the time the highly regarded website Epicurious had a self-publishing cookbook called Tastemade. The end result was fantastic. Needless to say, my family members and friends were very happy with their Christmas gift that year.

Publishing a cookbook is a great idea! It’s a wonderful way to organize your recipes. It’s also a great way to gather family recipes or put together a fabulous gift for a friend. I use my cookbook all of the time. I love the fact when I want to cook something I reach for my cookbook about 95% of the time! (Just look at the pages of my Crab Cake Recipe. What a mess!)

Last year Epicurious discontinued Tastebook. Fortunately, there are a lot of other self-publishing sites you can use to publish your own cookbook. Below are three of my favorites. 

  1. Create My Cookbook
  2. Heritage CookbookHeritage Cookbook
  3. Blurb

Cookbooks are great holiday gifts so start now and you will be finished in plenty of time for the holidays.

  1. Do the recipe pages for any of these websites fit the tastebook recipe binders? We want to add pages to our original tastebook. Thanks!
