I know Cathy Z was working on recipe templates... if you go to the store and search on recipe several sets come up.. Since you are so new templates may be the easiest way to go although I know some of the ladies have made beautiful LOs on their own as well.. The Pattie Know set looks like it might be easiest for what you're planning.
