Now that you’ve set up your cookbook, let’s start organizing your recipe collection.
In this video, you will add at least 3 recipe slides to your cookbook.
You will type or paste a recipe onto each slide, then format the text.
Some of your recipes might be from a book or written on paper.
Others might be on a favorite cooking website.
You can use recipes from your own favorite resource.
To begin, make the first recipe slide after the cover slide.
You will move the slides into their respective sections a little later.
Choose a layout for your recipe slide.
Type a title for your recipe.
Personalize the recipe by adding where you got it,
to give credit to the recipe’s author, or add a short comment on why you liked it.
Adjust the size of the text to make it fit, if necessary.
Many slide layouts have one large text box.
To make your recipe easier to read, consider resizing and moving the text
box that’s already on your slide, and then adding other text boxes.
For example, you might want to have separate text boxes for ingredients and instructions,
if that fits better on the slide.
Now, add recipes to your cookbook.
Type, or copy and paste your recipe text.
Type your recipe’s ingredients in one of the text boxes.
To fit all of your recipe on the slide, you may need to resize your text.
Select the text and resize it so it fits better in the text box.
Then, in the other text box, type your recipe’s instructions, step by step.
Now, format the recipe’s directions so that it fits on your slide and is easy to read.
Keep formatting your recipe to make it visually appealing.
Bold certain text, italicize others or use different colors.
When your first recipe slide is the way you want it, duplicate it to quickly add another recipe.
Just type or paste the title and text of the new recipe
so that it replaces the text of the first recipe.
Repeat the same steps for the name of the recipe’s author, if necessary.
Now, delete the previous recipe’s text and type or paste in your second recipe.
If your recipe has different elements, such as a topping,
sauce, or a filling, break up the ingredient list with a heading.
Format your heading so that you notice the change in the list.
Now, duplicate the slide again to add more recipes.
Repeat the same steps as you did with the previous recipe.
