Recipe Book

This project started because of a family pain point: knowing we had all of these good recipes somewhere, but not being able to find them when we needed them! As a solution, I designed an iBook of recipes so that all of our recipes are in one place, everyone in the family can have a copy at hand, and new recipes can easily be added when we discover new ones we like.
