The Heritage Community

Although some people are content with leaving their cookbooks in the cloud by opting for digital-only creations, many people are looking to create physical cookbooks. The feeling of decades of family or community recipes sitting in your hands is priceless. Of course, this aspect of printing your own cookbook requires additional steps and considerations, but Heritage Cookbook is here to help.

Choosing the right binding is a key step on the journey towards making your own cookbook binder or book. The binding literally holds the book together, and its structure affects the book’s durability, weight, and how easy it is to handle and use. Your cookbook will also look different depending on which binding you choose.

Balancing all these factors is very important, so we’re today here to help guide your decision.

The Best Bindings for Printing Your Own Cookbook

At Heritage Cookbook, we offer six different bindings to choose from. Prices for printing and shipping vary depending on the length of your book, but you can use our handy price calculator to figure out a rough estimate for how much it will cost to print your own cookbook.

1. Binders

Binders offer lots of freedom and flexibility for you to add and remove recipes, even after your cookbook is printed. Every binder-bound book will ship with your recipes inside a 3-ring binder, which has been professionally printed with your cover design. Anyone who wants the freedom to add recipes and pages later will love our binder option.

2. Plastic Coil

Choosing plastic coil binding for your cookbook is a great option. It’s one of our lightest and most flexible bindings, and it will always lay flat on your countertop, making it easy to read. It comes with laminated front and back covers, which you can design with your own cover design, or choose one of our beautiful professional designs.

3. Wirobound

Our wirobound binding is a light and flexible option, made with metal coil binding and a laminated wraparound cover. This binding makes your cookbook look professional but still gives it the ability to lay flat on your kitchen countertop.

4. Hardcover Wire

Our hardcover wire binding offers the opportunity to create a cookbook that really stands out. After you’ve ordered your cookbook, your front and back cover images will be printed on high-quality hardcovers, which are then bound with rigid hard wire. It’s a great way to get the best of both worlds – rigid, durable hardcovers with flexible wires that lay perfectly flat while you’re cooking.

5. Softcover

Our larger bound books are 7” by 10”, and are available in both hardcover and softcover options. The softcover book is great if you want a larger, fully bound book, but are looking for a lighter, more flexible, affordable option. Our softcover cookbook is beautifully printed in black and white or color on glossy paper.

6. Hardcover

The most durable option we have available is the stunning hardcover cookbook binding. It’s the perfect way to save a lifetime of treasured memories and is sturdy enough to be passed down for generations. It works best with a cookbook holder in your kitchen but looks perfectly at home on your bookshelves once the meal is done.

The 7 Best Recipe Organizers of 2021

Final Verdict

The Kate Spade Recipe Book (view at Amazon) is a great choice for anyone looking for a quality and incredibly stylish recipe book with seven tabbed sections that make organizing easy. For a no-frills option, file your recipes in the trusty Pendaflex Portable File Box (view at Amazon).

What to Look for in a Recipe Organizer

Ease of Use

This is the most important consideration when shopping for a recipe storage solution. If your recipes are not accessible, you won’t use them. Keeping them in a system that makes sense for you and your lifestyle is paramount.

Organization Style

Again, this depends on what works for you. If you love handwritten cards, a box or journal-style organizer is likely best. If you like to print out or tear from magazines, you need a standard sheet-size storage solution. Maybe something that comes pre-tabbed or easily categorized, like a binder or digital app, would work well. The best organization style is the one that works for you.


How many recipes you need to store is the large consideration here. If your collection is constantly growing, you probably want something you can add refills to or enlarge. If you are trying to capture some nostalgic family recipes handwritten on an index card, perhaps a box or journal with fixed space is the right solution. And, the next consideration is how much space you have to devote to recipe storage. If you live in a cozy home, a digital solution may be best since they can be accessed across multiple devices you already own and everything is stored in an app. As with other considerations, it is about what works for you and your lifestyle.


How do you organize recipes?

The first step is to gather all your recipes and evaluate what you have. Then, think about what makes the most sense for you and your family. Some home cooks organize by meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert). Others utilize a different category system, like soups, salads, pastas, and so on. Perhaps you are a person who ascribes to alphabetization. If so, it would make the most sense to ignore categories and just go by where the recipe falls according to the alphabet. You could also organize by alphabet within categories. There are myriad of ways to organize, so use the method that works best for you.

For non-loose recipes, like those in cookbooks, you can set up a tab or page marker system within the books on your shelf. For digital enthusiasts, many apps offer a number of organization styles, including by menu.

Where should you store a recipe organizer?

It really depends on the style of organizer you choose. If you opt for one of the attractive box models, it becomes a piece of decor on your counter. If you get a binder or journal-style organizer, the bookshelf in your kitchen is an obvious choice or wherever you store your cookbooks. Many home cooks who utilize app systems keep a recipe book holder for their tablet near the kitchen prep area to afford easy access while cooking. If you go for the larger storage box or accordion-style file organizer, a kitchen or pantry cabinet makes the most sense. It’s close to your prep area, but out of sight.

How to Make a Recipe Binder

June 26, 2019

It was time for a little Recipe Binder re-do and I thought you might like to see how I put it together. I have been using recipe binders to organize recipes for years and years and I am convinced that it’s the reason meal planning works in our house.

Do I have every week’s meals planned out perfectly? No. Do I still use cookbooks – absolutely! Do we ever order out unexpectedly because I couldn’t get my act together? Of course. But when it comes down to it, having favorite recipes in one place, printed out and ready to reference is just so great. The last time I overhauled our recipe binders was in 2015 and we’ve changed our eating habits quite a bit so going through them and weeding out recipes I won’t make any longer was freeing.

If you are reading this and thinking or saying, I have all my recipes saved on the computer or on Pinterest, or an online recipe account, and I don’t need that hassle or mess or clutter, keep reading because I am here to tell you that keeping your recipes sorted and organized in a binder is actually more of a time saver than hopping online. Why? Cue the distraction of the Internet – hopping online to grab that recipe will probably lead you to Facebook or Instagram which will lead you down a rabbit hole and you’ll forget what you were looking for anyway. Or maybe that’s just me? In this online centered world, I crave moments without that constant connectivity and love thumbing through cookbooks and recipe binders. Can you relate?

Curious enough to keep reading? Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Clean Mama’s Recipe Binder Kit (recently updated and added to the Dinner Rotation Kit with a different look but the same features) – this is what I used but you could create your own dividers and pages and everything else, but it’s much easier to grab the kit 😉
  • a little time – I completely re-did my recipe binders to launch this new product and it took me a couple hours. My daughter helped me with the sorting and transferring – it was fun! So it will take you a little time, but I know it will pay off in meals on the table.
  • a binder (or 2 or 3) – (I used these binders from Martha Stewart in blue and gray ) I have recipes split into 3 binders (every day recipes, desserts, and holidays)
  • bookplates – not necessary but cute
  • plastic sleeves to put the recipes in – this protects them, but you could omit them and three-hole punch the recipes if you’d prefer
  • that stack of recipes that you have in your kitchen cupboard or drawer – put them to use!
  • divider pages – I used these tabbed divider pages (the labels are included in the Recipe Binder Kit)

I linked all of these items up at the bottom of the post through Amazon plus some of my favorite cookbooks too!

Once you have your supplies, it’s time to get started – here’s what you need to do:

  • gather your supplies
  • print out dividers/categories
  • gather your recipes
  • put your recipes in plastic sleeves and sort them according to your categories

Making a Recipe Binder might seem like a daunting task, but with a little time and organization, you can make a recipe binder that will become your family cookbook and ultimately save you time and money. Clean Mama’s Recipe Binder Kit is simple and straightforward and done with beautiful images that you’ll be excited to display and use to make meal planning a little easier.

The Clean Mama Recipe Binder Kit includes (43 documents)

INSTRUCTIONS – ‘How to Make a Recipe Binder’
SUBSTITUTIONS – This for That page
3 TITLE PAGES to choose from : Family Recipes, Recipe Binder, Dessert Recipes
RECIPE PAGE – FILLABLE/EDITABLE – type in your favorite recipes, save, and print

Once you’ve printed out the sections that you want to use and have begun setting up your binder, keep moving quickly and you’ll be surprised how quickly the binder comes together. As you’re getting your binder set up take the time to toss/recycle any recipes that you’ve been holding onto and haven’t made and probably won’t make, or any recipes that you made that aren’t super great or worth making again.

Included in Clean Mama’s Recipe Binder Kit are labels that you can use for dividers – you can print and trim and place in dividers or make your own by simply printing them out on card stock, trimming down to size, and use packing tape to adhere to the divider pages.

Now that you have your Recipe Binder all set up it’s time to put it to use! What’s the perfect way to put it to use? Make a menu plan and utilize the binder for success.

My top 3 categories/pages are:

• Recipes to Try

• Family Favorites
• Meals for this Month

I found a plastic folder sleeve to put recipes to try in – this is where I keep the recipes I want to make. If they make the cut they get put into the binder.

Use these categories and pages to organize and plan as you’re getting started. Keeping a quick reference guide to favorites and recipes to make keeps it simple and eliminates time wasted while you’re figuring out ‘what’s for dinner’.

Keep your recipe binder where you’ll use it – I keep my recipe binders with my most-used cookbooks on a small shelf in the side of out kitchen island. I love cookbooks and recipes and menu planning – if you can’t tell by my little cookbook collection.

Here’s a link to the Dinner Rotation + Menu Planning Guide in my shop if you’re interested.
