I have been battling with my stack of recipes for some time now and I finally got them somewhat corralled (do you like the western theme I am running with here?) into a handy dandy binder. I get most of my recipes from magazines (Namely Kraft food and Family, love them. Fast, cheap, easy. Hmmm. That description sounds a bit questionable. You can see the online version here.) and the internet (Mostly Good Things Utah since I can watch them prepare it and then see if it is something that I can manage.) So, I had a stack of print outs and magazine clips waiting to have a real home.
Enter your friendly neighborhood binder. I used tabs to separate by type (salad, soup, entree, etc) and put a sheet protector behind each tab to house any recipes that have not been tried yet. They don't get a permanent home until they have been properly taste tested. I punched holes in the family favorites and put them in, but am debating on putting them all in sheet protectors so they don't get ruined while I am cooking. Although, the occasional smudge adds character.
Someone mentioned that if you put them in sheet protectors you can write on them with erasable markers if you need to half the batch and then just wipe it off when you are done. Smart!
Well here she is, the fabulous binder, pretty cover and all.
Unfortunately, well maybe fortunately, I forgot to take before pics. Imagine a big stack of paper and clippings. Done!
