Aside from photography, people are also very passionate about food. These two passions often converge, which is why many digital cameras have “food” scene modes, helping you take the best snapshot of your culinary creation. If you’re even more serious about your food and food photography you can take the next step and make your very own cookbook.
HP now offers a varied selection of templates to help those of you that really enjoy cooking create personalized cookbooks. Once you gather your favorite recipes, HP’s templates make sure you don’t miss any details with easy to follow guidelines that make sure you include all the relevant information in the proper format. There are also spaces created to upload images into the templates as well.
The recipe cards print out 4 x6 and can be printed on plain paper, photo paper or card stock. The 4×6-inch size is available as photo paper in packs of 20 or more in a wide variety of retail locations. How you store your finished recipe cards is up to you but the standard plastic containers with the flip open top remain the most popular method. Saving an electronic version now makes sharing these culinary concoctions a breeze as well.

- Christmas Recipe Cards (Themes: Ornaments or Winter Lace)

The nice thing about HP’s templates is that many of them have spaces for your photos – a lot of online templates are have some canned clip art to decorate them but don’t allow you to personalize it with your own images.
