I have been having a bit of a recipe assembling crisis lately and wonder if there a secret formula that works for storing your recipes and being able to actually find them at a moments notice. I have always kept my written recipes in a box that I purchased many years ago. It has always worked, kinda…. not only did it contain recipe cards, but it also became a storage place for the tooth fairy’s treasures, rubber bands, paper clips, old shopping lists and the occasional box top. In fact, the lid would not close all the way and I could never find the recipe I was searching for. I guess that defeats the sole purpose of the recipe box.
I tried to go the binder route, but never completed it. I thought that having all my recipes in a binder would be a good idea. That way when I travel back to the States, I could throw them in my carry-on bag. I do enjoy cooking in my moms kitchen. Its I great concept, but it seems a bit bulky.
As I am no longer in the “tooth fairy” season of life it is time to at least clean out my box and change it up to actually assist me in my meal planning.
Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to how they store their recipes. I recently visited pinterest to see if I could find that perfect secret formula for storing my recipes. There are so many wonderful ideas out there.
As I am still on the fence about which way to go with my recipe storage, I would be only too happy to have some input from you. How do you store your recipes and does that system work well for you?
