Create a Family Heirloom for the Kitchen

'AARP Family Recipe Keeper' will help you

AARP recipe binder

Be the author of your own cookbook with the AARP Family Recipe Keeper. The binder — with tabs, dividers, and pockets and sleeves for photos, notes and memorabilia — is designed to become an heirloom in which you can pass recipes and kitchen secrets on to relatives and friends.

To get your collection started, the Recipe Keeper contains 50 mouthwatering classic dishes, from appetizers and salads to main courses and desserts. You’ll also find handy references, such as a measurement equivalent table and a list of ingredient substitutions.

Most important, the Recipe Keeper provides recipe templates so you have a place to record your favorite dishes. The two templates (see the links below) may be printed out or saved electronically, so there is no limit to the number of recipes you can add. The Recipe Keeper also includes guidance on how to record recipes so they are easy to follow; space to tell a story or share key facts about the dishes; and questions to ask yourself that you can share with family and friends to make the recipe collection a group activity.

The AARP Family Recipe Keeper is available at and at booksellers nationwide.
