Kitchen Basics 101: Making Half a Recipe Use the original cooking temperature/time as a reference point but monitor closely for the results you are looking for; If you are baking half a recipe of cake, bread or pie, then the cooking time about two thirds to three quarters of the original time. Pan Size: Try to use a pan that has half the volume of the one called for in the original recipe.
I've said for months now that I need to get our recipes in a binder, we have a huge stack of printed pages from internet sites sitting beside the cookbooks. Our family recipes are hand written in to a book I have for recipes but it has seen better days and the page protectors would be a blessing.
Make your own family cookbook! This is fantastic. I have been working on ours and my husband ordered it for me for Christmas this past December. I still have 70 pages of recipes I can add with family photos. I love this!!
