Oh my god why on earth didn't I come up with this idea? It's brilliant: there's a new online site called Tastebook.com where you can create your own cookbook.
As they put it: "TasteBook makes it easy to create beautiful, personal cookbooks." They're not kidding, either. You can add recipes from Epicurious, Gourmet, and Bon Appetit as well as your own personal recipes. Then they bind it in a hardcover and make it look very, very pretty.
What a great gift idea! And again, I ask: why the heck didn't I think of this???? Sheesh. Anyhow, if you make or one or receive one, I'd love to see pictures! Send 'em on in!
