Can you recommend a good website to help write a cookbook?

Can you recommend a good website to help write a cookbook? I want to do a hardcopy, not ebook. It is a very small book with just a few recipes not to be published for the public, but as a gift to a family I have cooked for.... I want to add a few photos and want it to be more upscale.

It's not a website, but a great place to start would be "The Recipe Writer's Handbook" by Barbara Gibbs Ostmann. Writing a followable recipe is more than a notion, and there definitely is a right and a wrong way to do it. Are you aware of the costs of doing a book like the one you are envisioning?

I'm looking for more of a easy to use, well done template to drop recipes and photos into.... hit send and have the copies sent to me.

Can store your recipes and make a cookbook out of them. I haven't made a book but a few friends have, some as gifts and love the books.

I have done two books with Fundcraft.com. They had an online program and multiple templates. Custom dividers and pictures add to the cost but they both looked good!
