I am trying to export a cookbook I made in indesign (first time using indesign). Everytime I try to export it to a pdf, it comes out blank. I am not sure what I am doing wrong! I have tried reading a bunch of posts about this, but nothing I do seems to help.

It looks like you have used Master Pages for all of your pages. Exporting to a PDF will exclude the master pages. Master pages are used to add common elements to the "regular" pages. You can read about them here:

https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/master-pages.html

You can use the fly-out menu on the Pages panel to add pages to your InDesign file, then select page 1 and apply the first master page to it, then repeat for the other pages, or drag and drop each master page onto the regular pages panel. In order to edit the pages, you will need to select the page and override the master page items.
