Before aspiring chefs can produce their culinary masterpieces, they need a bit of direction.
Provide your own kitchen creations through a Microsoft Word recipe book.
Launch Word 2013 and type "booklet" into the main splash screen search box.
Click "Text Box" and select "Simple Text Box" to add a new area for text on the page.
Click into the "Title of your Booklet" bracket on the first page. To format the title, or any other text throughout the cookbook, click the Home tab and use the options in the Font, Font Color, Size and font formatting sections.
Right-click the generic image on the template's cover.
Double-click the first template to appear in the search results, "Booklet." In a few moments, the book opens.
Scroll through the pages to get an idea of the layout and what you'll want to change.
