From recipe card filing systems to customized innovations like the tastebook, there are many ways to organize recipes. Still, if you own more than a dozen cookbooks, keep some of your family's recipes on record, and have limited kitchen space, maintaining an organized cooking library can be tough.
I've always struggled to arrange my kitchen paperwork — treasured family recipes, cookbooks, personal creations, recipes I've come across online, and appliance instruction manuals — all in one place. The closest thing I have to a solution is a binder full of sheet protectors that are sorted by course, so that I can insert any printout, clip, handwritten recipe, or manual. It sits next to a shelf full of cookbooks with recipes that have been tabbed.
How about you? Have you found a recipe organizing solution that works for you? I'd love to hear about it!
Last week a few of us were talking about how difficult it is to get our parents' recipes. My mom and dad both tend to eyeball things, and when I ask them how much they usually say, "Eh, just a little, not too much."
Each time I go home, I watch my mom prepare dishes and take notes, sometimes even video. It's tedious, but I know that I now have those recipes in hand.
The family recipes mean a lot to me, and I was wondering how you felt about them. Are yours written down somewhere?
