As you all know, I am all about organization. That being the case, it shouldn't surprise you that my recipe drawer looks like this:
Wait - there's something terribly wrong with this picture. In fact, I think I've just pinpointed the reason I don't cook - I can't locate any of my recipes. Yep, surely that must be it. Well my friends, I feel it's time to remedy this little problem. You see, organizing my recipes is something I've wanted to do for quite some time. I've even taken (baby) steps toward doing so in the past.
Exhibit A: the purchase of (several) packs of these adorable recipe cards. The plan? To transcribe all of my recipes onto these pretty little things so it'd be nice and uniform. The problem? I have the penmanship of a 1st grader and could only get half of the ingredients listed before running out of room. Fail.
Exhibit B: I saw this cute little recipe box and knew it was the answer to my problem. My plan this time around was to type up all my recipes in a format that I could cut them out and they would fit in the box. Guess who still hasn't done that 2 years after purchasing said box? Fail.
So here's where we stand...I am leaning towards buying a 3 ring binder and making dividers of the different categories (Desserts, Desserts, etc. - cause that's all I really cook) and also getting some sheet protectors so that I could just slide the smaller recipe cards I have and/or receive into it and they'd still fit in the binder. Thoughts? Ideas? How do you organize your recipes?
