Cute!  I've been thinking that I need one of these lately.  Would you mind explaining how you made it?

You may also try a product called undo.  I'm not sure how well it will work on photographs but it is great for unsticking stickers and such from paper.  They also make a photo care solution which is similar.

One thing to note to keep this from happening again... use page protectors.  If you don't like the look of covering your entire page in a protector you can also get something called photo sleeves which are protective sleeves sized just for photographs.  This way if you have photos on opposing pages they won't stick together anymore.

Here's a cute idea for when you get down to making the pages:  If you mix scented powders with embossing powder you can emboss an image on the recipe page that will actually smell like the food.  I've done this with cinnamon powder and orange kool-aid packets.  I've found that a one part scent, two parts embossing powder mix works well, but play around with it depending on what you're using.

As for the book there's a couple of things you can do.  As a few people have already suggested, using a three ring binder with page protector inserts that hold 4x6 photos would let you use 4x6 recipe cards decorated in a scrapbooking fashion.

There's a company that makes smaller sized sprial bound books which you can get page protectors for if you're looking for.  If you want something smaller than an 8.5x11 book that would be a good option and also give you room to add recipes over the years.

Another fun option if you'd like to do more scrapbooking is to make an actual scrapbook page about the recipe/family member it came from and then include the recipe on a 4x6 card on the scrapbook page.  If you put the recipe in a photo sleeve you'd be able to pull it right out of the book to cook and then replace it in the scrapbook when you're done.

Have fun with this, it will be a great project!
