blank recipe card template

Editable Blank Recipe Template – Google Docs Recipe Template

As the name suggest, this recipe template named itself editable blank recipe template. While the naming is a bit redundant because templates are commonly editable, in fact, some recipe template comes already in pdf or printed. However, it does not mean that recipe template in pdf is bad. Pdf recipe template comes handy when you just want to write down on a paper using a pencil.

This editable blank recipe template looks very simple. There is no sample image you spot in the layout. Although the dominant colour used in this template is red, you can always change it with any colour you love.

One different and unique about this template is that the term “directions” usually found in a recipe page is substituted with a term “procedure”. In addition, the ornaments behind the text box are just decorations. Thus, if you find it distracting, you can delete them.

Recipe Template for Cookbook – Google Docs Recipe Template

I have to admit that a name does not always resemble the appearance of the template. Like this one with pasta image in the bottom of the page. Mostly, the photo or image of a recipe page is positioned on top. I believe this is because the writer layout maker wants the reader to pay attention to the finished food that is expected to be attention catcher.

recipe costing

Recipe Costing Template

We name this template “Recipe Costing template” because there is a section in the page in which you can put the total cost and also individual cost of the ingredients and all requirements to make the food presented in the recipe.

Basically, this recipe template is divided into two main row, the upper row, and the bottom row. Each row is separated into two columns. The title of the recipe is in the left top, and it is followed with brief description about the recipe.

The photo of the final product is shown on the top right. The photo is aligned with half of the overall plate. This is not without a purpose. Showing only a half plate of the food final presentation actually drives attention, and it contributes to the aesthetic aspects.

The half second row is covered with black background while the text is in white. This type of template is suitable for digital book. You can share the final recipe in pdf or in png. Furthermore, you can share it on social media. Alternately, you can collect pages by pages of your invented recipe to become your own cookbook.

This type of template is not suitable for printing if you print it yourself using inkjet printer because the blank color that dominates the second row will tend to bleed when combined with white text. However, if you print it in digital printing services, the result will be amazing. The difference or the contrast between the black and white colour becomes very clear without any bleeding between those two colours.

If you are not satisfied the black colour in the second row, you can change that with any substitute color you wish. Frankly speaking, the alternative colors that might be suitable are brown, red, and orange because those three colours are usually used to present food.
