As a gift for my mother, I compiled our family recipes online (tastebook.com) into this customizable cook book. I was able to upload my own photography inside the book and then pick from beautiful food shots for the cover of the book. You can both create your own recipes to include in this custom published cook book, or select Epicurious recipes to supplement the book. I picked my title to finish the customization and that was it. She LOVED it and was so touched by the gift. It is a favorite go-to cookbook in her collection.
