Apart from having amazing layout, these templates are fully editable in Word and even on Google Docs too. However, it’s best to use these templates on Microsoft Word! Check any of these templates, you will find them excellent in turning your recipes into a proper recipe book.

Design your recipe book in Microsoft Word

My recipe design templates can turn your handwritten recipes into a print-ready and personalized recipe book. From standard recipe book size of 8.5 x 11″ to a small recipe booklet, you will find here almost every paper size that is commonly used to publish recipe books.

As Microsoft Word is relatively easy to use than Adobe InDesign, so I have made these templates available for free, especially for those who love writing cooking books and are looking to professionally format recipes using Microsoft Word.

These templates are fully tested & compatible to print with Amazon kdp and other self-publishing platforms. Please just make sure you correctly convert the template into PDF! Particularly, make sure all fonts are properly embedded before printing the PDF.

Digital conversion of these recipe designs

Instead of scattered text boxes on a page, these templates are precisely created recipe designs in Word. These templates are printable, reflowable, easily modifiable and convertible into digital formats like epub and kpf for Kindle devices.

Adobe PDF is a widely acceptable digital format for ebook. You can smoothly convert any of these Word templates into PDF.

Converting a Word recipe book into epub

Calibre is a best free software for automatically converting a Word doc into an epub. You can use Calibre to convert these recipe layouts from Word into epub.

If you can adjust the code manually then saving a Word doc into filtered html and converting that html into an epub through Sigil will work perfect. Sigil is also a free ebook editing software.

For reflowable epubs, this would be great if you know some html and CSS because most of these templates are built using tables and automatic conversion for tables in reflowable epub will not always & completely accurate!

Full multi-page recipe templates

These templates include multiple pages for writing recipes in Microsoft Word. You will get a complete book package created specifically for making customized recipe books.
