Oh...Now What to Cook?


With our collection of recipes growing rapidly, I needed a simple way to keep them organized and accessible.
I have tried traditional recipe cards and boxes in the past and found them too small and limiting.
What I decided to do is have two notebooks...one with "recipes to try" and one with recipes we have tried and liked. I just hole punch sheets I print off the computer and insert them into the binder. As we try the recipes I either move them to the other binder or to the trash...depending on how they went over!
It is simple...easy to customize and large enough for me to make notes.
I also added some blank paper and plastic sleeves to the back for additional items.
