Templates for Making a Cookbook?

bostonfoodie85 | Nov 13, 2011 10:09 AM

I am trying to put together a cookbook as a gift for my friends but am having a hard time finding a decent template. I am not interested in a cookbook making company; I can bind them myself and only really want to do a run of 20 or 30.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I use Word and Excel at work but am not the most design savvy person. It seems like there is a word template but it's not really all that attractive.

*as a bonus, any ideas for interesting ways to customize it? No housewife scrapbooking instincts here but something like using covers from old books or seed packets to give them a little more interesting look.
