What's the best software or format to use to create my own family eCookbook? I can create it in HTML, but if there is another program that would make it easier, I'd be interested in finding it! Anybody have any experience with this?
I will second that. I used HTML & Mobipocket to create my nutrition guide, and it was definitely the way to go. I think any non-fiction books really need the organization and the active contents, etc. that the Mobipocket Creator can help you with. The resulting PRC file can be directly loaded up on a Kindle.
I've used Word 2003 and when I'm done with all the tweaking, etc. saved it as filtered HTML. Then I've used the Mobi. My eyes start to twitch when I read some of the ways to do all of this - it's way over my head - but I've managed to hone it down to a few steps that make it all work. At home, not on the computer I'm sitting at, I have a post (maybe on the KDP Support Forums) that was very helpful for this sort of formatting. If I can pull it up I'll post a link here.
