If you're picky, like I am, here is a list of everything that's in it so you can decide if it's what you're looking for. (1) Strong cover but it might get a bit marked or stained in the kitchen (2) Good quality thick pages, glue or ink won't show thru on the next page (3) 2 ribbon bookmarks (4) page for the guardians of your recipe book (nice touch !!) (5) 4 pages for contents (6) page for oven temps & weight (7) page for cooking terms (al dente, blanch, florets etc) (8) page for cooking times, abbreviations, how much spaghetti, butter, eggs. (9) page for steak finger test, defrosting poultry and how long to cook it if it's stuffed or not (10) 2 pages for family pictures (11) 2 pages for notes (12) pages for 80 recipes (yes, I did count them - sad lol) and each page has recipe name, difficulty rating, how many it serves, cooking time, ingredients, method, created by, good space for a picture, hints/tips, a star rating and a few lines for a review from the family (13) 2 pages for pictures of classic family meals (14) 5 pages for useful tips and 5 pages for family secrets (cooking or otherwise !!) (15) finally inside the back cover is a paper storage wallet that has 2 sections. Thank you for taking the time to read this review and I hope it helps you decide

I wouldn't say I LOVE the product, but that said, I am definitely considering buying more coppies for parents, grandparents and family primarily because it's a briliant idea to have it all in a single book.

When purchasing this product I was mostly unsure about the content. So for future buyers, here's a brief content list:
- About me section (about 2 pages long): info about you (from name, to hight, first word, allergies, funny habits).
- Two silhuettes of a human body (front and back) to mark your scars, beauty marks, whatever you have on your body.
- A fairly small world map (only takes up one page)
- Then you have small sections like 50 things to do before you die, what jobs you've had, etc.
After these sections the whole book basically consists of recurring 8 pages, 2 of each representing one of the seasons (tease are for you to fill in obviously)
Then there are pages as "higlights of the year", "picture of me this year"
Every once in a while you'll get a page such as "top 10's of year xxxx" where you list top ten songs or people or whatever.
This is basically it.
Oh, and the book has a space to put documents in at the end of it.

Also worth mentioning: one of the customers said the pages were stuck together: true in my case too, but it doesn't bother me because they're only stuck together at the edges so you don't damage the pages when pulling them apart.
I only hoped the sheets of paper would be thicker, but they look as though they are just thick enough.

All of the above said, the book is presented in a way that makes me think it really will last a lifetime, but obviously, I'll only know that once I get there.

In short, would recommend.

This is a great book for writing your favourite recipes down. It is great for sticking pics and notes of your recipes in also if you cannot be bothered to write then down by hand. I brought the Moleskine recipe notebook a while ago but found the book got messy after writing a few recipes down as the paper was too thin. The quality of this products paper is excellent and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Very Sturdy.

I've spent quite some time on Amazon searching for a product that would match my expectations, and this one surpassed it! The cover is sturdy and the pages are of high quality which means pen ink doesn't show through on the next page. Lots of sections and pages to write recipes and place to add pictures, which is a great personal touch.
Only comment missing from other reviews is that there are only 3 divider sections (where you can categorize your recipes). I'm not too fussy so for me this is fine - I have just used 1) starters & snacks, 2) mains, 3) sweets and desserts. But for the fussy buyer who would like sections for soups, salads, entrees etc., then you might want to look at another product.
I recommend this product 110%. Great value for money even with shipping charges to Denmark :)

Huge amount of pages, nicely laid out. Only thing I would add is an indexing on the side, to divide kinds of recipes. Great value for money. Arrived quickly to ITALY

Bought this for my daughter after reading reviews.It seems a good idea but in practise its hard to use.If you add in photos then as mentioned by other reviewers the book won't close.

I'm not sure it will be used by my tech savvy daughter.

Loving this book.

I've been sitting with my mother for the past two months writing all the recipes she knows into this wonderful book: giving me a fantastic opportunity to learn and connect with my mother.

Incredible what a simple little recipe book can do!
