Re: Recipe Storage

I keep my most-loved ones on my food blog. I figure I can never lose them that way! Also, it's helpful if I'm out and need a recipe. I just hop on the internet and there it is!

This, as well as a recipe file on my computer (all of which are printed out).

Re: Recipe Storage

All of my recipes (except my dinner ones) I keep on note cards in a lovely little vintage recipe box. I have little divider cards to keep everything together, pies, cookies, side dishes, sauces, etc.

My dinner recipes I write in a mini-notebook. It's easy to edit them if I need to change an ingredient, and it's convenient to keep in the kitchen cupboard since it's small.

Re: Recipe Storage

I have a recipe book that is sort of like a journal, only specifically for recipes. I actually bought it for my Mom when I was in university and typed all of her staple Mom-recipes into it. I gave it to her for Christmas. Then, she added things, mostly by handwriting them onto the pages or taping an article or a card into the book. When she died, I brought it home and now I add to it. I only add tried and true, well-loved family favourites. Everything else (things i have only tried once or twice, or need to try) is in magazines, or in a file in my email inbox.

It is a smaller 3-ring binder type book, so if the pages ever run out I can add more paper. I love to think that some of the recipes were my mom's favouritse, some will be our family's favourites, and then I will give it to my DD (or one of the DS's, if they want it). I also love that it has my Mom's handwriting in it, and will have mine for my kids.
