Guy is going nuts (actually I am too) with all the clutter in the way of recipes everywhere.You know the ones, ripped out of magazines, scribbled on the back of envelopes, floating around on 3×5 cards. I am proposing a new challenge and I need you to keep me accountable. I am going to actually make the recipes I have collected. Yep, you heard me I am going to make the recipes. I am going to treat this like purging my closet.
Step 1: Go through the recipes and pull out the recipes I think I will actually make someday. Throw away the rest. (This will be painful!)
Step 2: Organize the remaining recipes. Ideas. How do you organize your stash? I am thinking I am going to organize with in genres and then within each separate by seasons. I am not going to make something with pumpkin in the Spring or something with asparagus in the Winter.
Step 3: Make the recipes. Report back to you on the hits and misses.
Final product: an organized recipe “book”, uncluttered kitchen, new repertoire of recipes, and a happy husband.
I need your help and ideas please. How do you organize your recipes? I was thinking of getting a 3-ring binder with 3×5 photo sleeve inserts. Writing/printing the recipes on a 3×5 cards and then placing a picture of the dish beside it. (Sometimes I need a visual for motivation.)
What do you think of this?
