One consistent issue that has come up time after time is how to keep your recipes organized and keep them from being destroyed. While I ultimately chose a combination of methods, there are several ways to keep recipes…
-Online: You can type up your recipes and store them on a variety of sites or in a simple system like Microsoft Word. Either way, you can quickly go to your recipes with the click of a button!
-Written: Like our mothers and grandmothers, written/scribbled recipes and notes are often our “go to” or default choice!
-Memory: Well this is for those that are truly skilled in the kitchen! I, unfortunately, am not one of them! While I can recall some recipes, we’ve expanded our catalogue of recipes far beyond my brain’s capacity!
-Use Recipe Books: Using a combination of various recipe books, marking your favorites along the way, makes for a helpful, quick and easy reference.
-Combination Method: You may find it helpful to use a variety of these recipe resources to help out in the kitchen! Any combination of these methods can be helpful… as long as you have them readily available!
Personally, I have my “go to” recipes typed online as well as printed out in a little recipe book. This works great in our house so that if my husband has to fix a meal, he knows exactly where to go and has the tools he needs to be successful in the kitchen! I even have each recipe placed in a sheet protectors so that they aren’t prone to spills, etc... yes, I’m just that compulsive! Plus, there’s not much room for errors considering it’s all typed and not hand-written J
How do you like to keep those precious and treasured recipes that your family loves??
