Do you have a few favorite recipes that you go to each week? How do you keep them organized so that you can grab them at a minute’s notice?
I have mine in two places:
1- My recipe box. I received this as a gift from my Mom at my wedding shower. It quickly became filled with recipes from friends, family and myself. It is organized by category (example: breads, casseroles, poultry…)
2- I also have a recipe binder. I keep them in an 8×10 photo album with the sleeves that allow you to easily slide recipes in and out. I keep recipes that I cut out of magazines in here. It would also fit recipe cards, but I keep the cards in my recipe box. I should combine the two, but I haven’t yet. I keep all of my holiday meals in here, too. (Example: For Thanksgiving every year, I make a pineapple casserole and it is right next to the recipe for pumpkin pie in my binder)
3- Online: I keep two pages on my pinterest page for recipes: The first one is just a broad one: recipes and I have one called Easy Dinner Recipes with little prep time
4- Books. I only have a hand-full of cook books left. I got rid of most of them years ago and kept my favorite ones (the ones by groups, like our church cook-book or my MOPS group cook-book… those are my favorite ones!) When I find a a book that I like in here, I copy it onto a recipe card & either put it into my binder or box.
Here are a few OTHER ideas (not ones that I do, but all great ideas):
– Take one large blank book and rewrite the recipes into it. This is helpful if you make changes/adjustments to your recipes (or make notes).
-Have a 3 ring binder filled with page protectors
-Chef Tap app
-A folder on your computer (document)
