The best gift ever: heirloom recipes (and it’s free)
I sent a survey a few weeks ago to ask what people wanted the most of the new release of Shop’NCook. There was only one among the most wished for things that I hadn’t added or improved in the new release: provide several styles for the recipes (graphic design has never really been my thing).
One of the comment in the survey really stuck by me…
The one thing I miss about using recipe cards is the personal look and handwriting on them. Also, I have printed my recipes and it just looks like I went to the internet and printed off any ole recipe when in actuality it was a heirloom family recipe or one I created.
So I hired a designer to make a new set of styles for the recipes – and here is the first style:
The Heirloom recipe style!
You can already enable it in Shop’NCook for your e-mails or for exporting your cookbooks to HTML by selecting it in the “Predefined style sheet” pull-down menu in the General tab of the Preferences (you don’t need to re-install if you are using Shop’NCook 4.0).
So, how about giving to your family a cookbook of your heirloom recipes this Christmas? I may very well be one of the best gift they receive – and it is free to make. Here is how to do it:
- Create a cookbook with your heirloom recipes in Shop’NCook software.
- Enable the heirloom recipe style in the Preferences.
- Select all the recipes of your cookbook using CONTROL-A on Windows or COMMAND-A on Mac.
- Select export to HTML in the File menu.
- Open the exported file in your browser and print it. You can also print it to PDF if you just want to send it by e-mail.
Now, I have something to ask you. What is the next style I should ask my designer to make?
(Note: the launch has been extended by one day, as I need the time to clear the backlog of e-mails I received since the beginning of the launch. Today – Saturday, December 18 – is the last day to take advantage of the launch bonuses. Click here for the details.)
