Get personal . . . with your own cookbook

TasteBook has unveiled a hard copy cookbook that gets very personal. It enables you to personalize a collection of recipes in a cookbook, enhanced far beyond many of the “photo memory” books on the market the past few years.

Who doesn’t appreciate the convenience of borrowing recipes and ideas from food sites and blogs?  Electronic copies free up my shelves and drawers. Over the past few years, I’ve been able to expand my nutritional repertoire and still keep my hard copy cookbook collection from growing too large to house without help from the National Archives. But hard copy cookbooks will forever find a home in my cookery. And I like to share cookbooks as gifts. 

I like the Tastebook concept. That’s all I’ll add right now.  I don’t want to spoil any surprises for those of you on my gift-giving list. Learn more about TasteBook:
