Ever have a recipe that you just can’t seem to find? We do too! Here are a few tips on organizing your recipes that are sure to help.
Let me start by saying that with me organization is a work in progress, this is one of the reasons I initially started blogging, to have a place to save all the recipes I have accumulated over the years from friends and family. However I never anticipated the deluge of new recipes that I would need to find a way to organize. I’ve tried many ways to store all my recipes and come to the conclusion that there are many ways to accomplish this task, here are a few of our favorite ways to do this…
Are you a Pinterest lover? We are! It’s an awesome way to organize many of the recipes I want to get inspiration from. You can follow the Pocket Change Gourmet Pinterest Boards and also the Hoosier Homemade Boards.
Although we love Pinterest, let’s face it, it may not be around forever. So having a spot to keep your recipes that won’t possibly go away is important.
Let’s not forget this staple of every kitchen. They definitely have a purpose and probably will have a place in our kitchen for a long time. We’ve gone through several iterations to develop a binder that we use for our entire house that we keep not only our most used recipes but other useful family information. Learn how to create your own Household Binder
If a whole Household Binder is not what you are ready to dive into, how about a Recipe Binder? I found this one on Amazon and they have a Recipe Starter Kit available too that comes with tab dividers, card protectors and sheet protectors.
Recently after much prodding from Doug we’ve been transferring all our recipes into Evernote. If you’ve not heard of this yet I’ll give you a quick description…It’s the ultimate file cabinet! When we find a recipe we love or simply want to give a try we easily share it into our Evernote account by either clicking the save button on our computer or if it’s in a magazine, we take a photo with our phone and upload it. Don’t fret if you like a hard copy to work off of, you can print directly from the app if you like.
There are also Moleskine Evernote Notebooks that can be used to write a recipe down and then upload it directly into Evernote.
