I have about a million recipes and they are all over the place. Or I find recipes and have no idea what to do with them. Plus, I think I have far too many cook books with many of them only having a couple of recipes that I really like or care to try.
I have tried the box method and it just doesn't work for me.
I have seen some women that keep recipes in photo albums. That works until I have full page recipes from magazines or something. I want something that I don't always have to copy something down onto something smaller.
I noticed another friend had hers in binders organized a particular way housed in page protectors for easy removal. I think I may try this way of doing things. I will organize according to main ingredient or as that is usually how I search for things on sites -- pork, chicken, fish, beef, dessert, etc. I will probably make a section for crockpot meals because I generally look for that kind of meal specifically. It's probable that I will need a few binders in the whole process.
I'll let you know how it goes. It's on my "to do" list for next week.
Do you have suggestions for recipe organization?
