Erin Miller, owner of Cookbook Outlet.

When Erin Miller moved to Boise from England, the everyday dishes her mom had cooked suddenly became a precious, if tenuous, bridge to home.

"I didn't know how to cook all the things that she used to make," Miller said. "And that's how I became really passionate about passing down recipes."

So she and her American husband Ted designed a software program to catalogue and archive family recipes. The Millers started The Cookbook People in 2007, which offered their recipe-compiling software online. The business took off. They then added a line of colorful recipe binders and folders and now sell their wares all over North America and have shipped to Australia and Europe.

Success also led to boxes upon boxes of inventory crowding the couple's home. So, on March 21, the Millers opened a brick-and-mortar storefront at 2033 N. 35th St., just off State Street. The Cookbook Outlet acts as both a warehouse for all those boxes and as a tiny retail space where they sell their recipe archiving program, folders and binders. But to be clear, the Cookbook Outlet doesn't actually sell cookbooks, just recipe-collecting materials.
