Here’s how a batch of Aunt Joyce’s famous dinner rolls gets botched: Your sister asks you for the recipe. You dig up hand-scribbled notes crusted with egg yolk circa 1987. You snap and text a photo, but she can’t read it and uses a cup--instead of a teaspoon--of baking powder. ??
Save your family from bitter bread by creating a custom e-cookbook of your most cherished recipes on Salty Fig. ??
Founded by local chef Suzanne Florek, Salty Fig started as a virtual recipe box, where you could save and tag recipes found online. But we love the site’s new e-cookbook tool for organizing the eats we really crave (Mom’s chili, Grandpa’s hush puppies).??
The process is intuitive. You upload recipes by scanning or typing them in. There’s a box for entering ingredients and instructions, a button for adding photos, and a place to include serving suggestions. Next, click the “My Books” tab to create an e-book with a custom cover, a dedication page, any of your recipes and even a playlist. (If you buy book credits for $10 each, you can sell on Apple iBooks or Amazon Kindle.)
Finally, click “Share” to email your book’s link or post it to social media.
Aunt Joyce’s splurge-worthy carbs deserve the special treatment.
