3.0 out of 5 stars Great quality, wish it had more pages though Nov. 20 2013
Format:Diary|Verified Purchase
Great book for jotting down all your favourite recipes, but I wish there would be more pages or that you could add pages. Also, I wish there wasn't the set categories and they just had stickers like they do for the rest. I really don't need a drinks section but there is one in here. And you cant jhust place a new sticker over the section because the section is laid out differently than the rest.

When people see this moleskin when I drag it out at the garden centre, they literally gush. Lots of ooohs and aaaahs. Really great for looking back and remembering when I plants things, what I've tried, etc. Get a fine-point pen, especially for the log section, to make the most of your moleskine!

3.0 out of 5 stars Moleskine Passions Recipe Journal May 5 2010
By Keith Blodgett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Diary|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
The Moleskine Passions Recipe Journal is a well made diary sized (5"x8") notebook printed on medium/light weight acid free paper with 240 total pages. It contains sections for most typical areas of cooking; Appetizers, First Course, Main Dishes, Deserts, etc. plus several unlabeled sections for the owner to personalize. In addition there are weight, measure and temperature conversion charts, produce and fruit harvest/ripeness charts, food information charts and sections for notes, event or party planning. The cover is cleverly embossed with kitchen utensils and includes an elastic strap to keep the journal securely closed. Also included are three handy attached bookmarks and an expandable pocket in the back which contains the two sheets of stickers (for personalization) that come with the journal.

The pages for recording your recipes have limited space for writing, you'll need write carefully and small to fit most recipes on a page. The pages are not removable and pages cannot be added or moved around. The print in the book (charts, tables, etc.) is nearly microscopic. I found it very hard to read anything in the journal. As well the current and recent prices listed here on Amazon make this a very expensive and hard to justify choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid buy, few small gripes about page layout March 4 2010
By Stacy A. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Diary|Verified Purchase
I have to be honest - I already have quite a collection of Moleskine notebooks and love them all. However, I will say that I found this recipe journal to be the perfect companion. I consider myself a home cook with a penchant for collecting, organizing and categorizing my recipes into favorites folders within Firefox. However, it isn't always safe for my computer on the kitchen counter.

The pages in the recipe journal give you enough room to record a standard recipe if you don't mind keeping your handwriting pretty small. I had to shrink mine a bit after a few of my longer recipes had ingredients squeezed into the margins. I found the space for rating the recipes - 0 to 5 stars - a little unnecessary. If I think a recipe is worth anything BUT 5 stars, I'm not wasting any Moleskine pages on it at all.

Loved the blank tabbed pages in the back and the adjoining stickers - there are LOTS to choose from - that let you create your own sections. However, the actual layout of those pages isn't really conducive to writing more recipes. You get a page split up into smaller sections horizontally and none of the nifty layout from the pre-labeled recipe sections.

I should also mention that the wine pairing space provided didn't get much use. I actually took it upon myself to LOOK UP wine pairings for some of my favorite recipes though, and to that end at least I've been prompted to learn something about wine/food.

All in all, this is a great companion for any foodie who has an appreciation for Moleskine's craftsmanship. If you ask me, sure beats having a tin full of index cards or a box full of clipped recipes.

Assuming I eventually fill up my recipe journal - I've just begun - I would definitely buy another one. Lets me take ownership of recipes and add my own variations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recipe creator/tweaker's dream April 13 2010
By M. Garrett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Diary|Verified Purchase
I really love the Moleskine Recipe Journal, I come from a family that loves to cook, but we each have our own twist on the same recipes. This is a great way to collect all those recipes you love in one place and to change them however you want! I would say it's deserving of a 5 star rating except there aren't as many pages of the full recipe layout as I would like - the last half of it is divided into 4 blank sections - a little smaller than the size of a recipe card. These sections are great for small recipes or notes, but I would much rather have more of the in depth pages that sold me on this journal in the first place.

3.0 out of 5 stars Layout is limiting May 18 2010
By d bucci - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Diary|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This is a small format journal 5 1/4" x 8 1/4". There are a total of 12 tabbed sections each of them can record 16 recipes. 6 of the sections are already identified as Appetizers, First Courses, Main Dishes, Side Dishes, Desserts and Cocktails.

Each page in that section is printed with the recipe journal template that divides the page into pre-labeled sections. About 1/3 of each page is taken up with sections to note difficulty, servings , preparation time, cooking time, cooking process, wine parings, notes, and 1 to 5 star rating. I would prefer not to have that space on each page dedicated so I would have the flexibility to include only the information I feel is necessary and have that extra space to record the recipe or notes. The note section is 1" x 1 1/2", too small to be practical and I don't need a dedicated section to record whether the recipe is prepared in an oven, microwave, or stovetop.
The cocktail section has a different template and includes sections for alcohol content, servings, ideal occasion,tools, suggested glass, decoration, rating and notes.
If you are not able to print neatly in a very small font, 8 -10 point you would have a hard time using this journal. The small journal size will also limit the length of the recipes you could include.

The six tabbed sections that are unmarked also can record 16 recipes but those pages do not use the recipe journal format the pages are divided horizontally into 5 equal sections.
Inside the back cover is a two pocket accordion file where you will find some pages of stickers. Two pages of them have stickers intended to use to identify the unmarked tabs or you could use them to reassign the pre-marked sections. The two other pages one red one grey include stickers like love this!, hate this!, great tip! best ever!

They do include a section at the end with the page numbers so you can create your own index. There are two pages at the beginning of the book to list events with dates and notes. Also a seasonal food calendar and 3 pages with nutritional information of misc foods and a "Useful Measures and Conversions" page.

At the Moleskine web site you can print out a .pdf of 4 blank recipe template pages or you can type in the recipe into the template and print it out. No way to add photos though and you can't save the filled in .pdf on your computer you can only print it out.
When typing into the .pdf it will let you add unlimited information, a scroll bar will show up on the box you are typing in but none of that additional information will print out so if the scroll bar pops up you need to edit and remove words until it disappears.

There is no way to bind those pages into your journal so you would have to tuck them into the pages loose or put them into the accordion pockets, or paste them onto a blank page. I cut the templates out two pages side by side, folded in the center and used one of the ribbon page markers to hold them in place.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough space Oct. 22 2012
By Sara - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Diary
I love moleskines' look and feel, and was excited to get this since I love to cook (I usually buy the drawing and watercolour pads).

This recipe journal is true to the moleskine esthetic, has cute lil stickers to decorate the recipes and the margins have useful sections such as cooking time, amount of servings, etc.

The problem is that the space given to write the recipe is tiny. I usually need to use two pages, which wouldn't be an issue if a third of the journal wasn't wasted on empty, sectionned pages. So I doubt I'll be able to write a lot in this.

Too bad, cause the concept is great.
