Work In Progress
The older I get the more recipes I seem to accumulate! I have recipes tucked away in two different recipe boxes, bookmarked in cookbooks, written on little slips of paper here and there, etc. You get the picture~ please tell me I'm not the only one! Night after night I stand in my kitchen trying to remember where I placed a certain recipe. Frankly, I am getting tired of it. I have decided I need to invest a little bit of time and effort and make a recipe binder of my tried and true recipes that I use over and over. I gave myself the following guidelines to stick by:
1. They must be typed in LARGE print. Old eyes, you know!
2. Each must be placed in a protective cover in order to avoid staining from flying batter, chocolate fingers, spaghetti sauce splatters, etc...
3. They must be put into categories using tab folders. I want to be able to put my hands on the recipe I need in a timely fashion.
4. They will be put into a large binder and it will have a pretty, decorative cover. (I'm still working on the pretty, decorative cover part;o)
I started by sitting down and sifting through my recipe boxes, cookbooks, slips of paper, etc. to find the recipes that I use on a regular basis. I was fortunate enough to have several of them already on my blog so they were easy to do, all I had to do was print them out. The time consuming part will be to type all of the other ones up but I know in the long run it will be well worth it! Hopefully I will be able to share it with y'all in the not too distant future!
Here are the ones I got from my blog. BTW, my blog has a lot more recipes than my archives show~ I need to get working on that, too!
