If you are like me, you like to collect recipes. You have recipe cards, newspaper and magazine clippings, emails etc.. and it can get a bit chaotic. Here's how I organize everything. I actually have a system--took me years to perfect :-)
For recipes that I clip from magazines or print from the internet, I have files. I have them labeled -- desserts, dinners, salads and sides, breads, and miscellaneous.
When I try a recipe, if I like it, it goes into my recipe binder with plastic sheet protectors. I recently bought a fun and colorful binder! I have tabs to divide them into the same categories as my files. If I don't like the recipe, there are no second chances -- I show no mercy! It gets tossed! (recycled, of course!)
Remember, on this blog I will only post recipes that made it to the binder or recipe box. Tried and True!
Why This Blog?
Come in and make yourself at home. I'm so happy to be able to share my recipes here with you.
I bake mostly cookies, quick breads, muffins and scones -- sometimes pie, sometimes cake, but nothing too fancy. I prefer simple recipes that call for ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.
These are the recipes I will share with you. They come from family and friends, magazine clippings saved through the years, favorite cookbooks, and other blogs.
I'm so glad you came to visit. Enjoy your stay!
