Do you have a recipe binder? If not, you should!
I think it is one of the best tools to have in the kitchen. It has been an invaluable asset to cooking meals, baking and meal planning.
I would like to show you a little about how it works for me.
In the front pocket, I keep past menu plans, blank monthly calendars (to write up new menu plans), my list of favorite meals and any recipes that either haven’t been tried or haven’t been put into proper format.
Categories are as follows:
~ Vegetarian/non meat/fish
~ Non-food (bath salts, soaps, etc.)
I prefer to type out my recipes, when time permits. This allows me to have a back-up copy of all recipes on my hard drive. If a recipe isn’t one of my own, I also try to remember to list the blog/site where I found the recipe. I do this, because occasionally, I forget to bookmark the recipe and this allows me to do a quick search on the site/blog listed on the recipe, for those instances where I need to give proper credit (ex. menu plan).
I also find that my recipe binder makes meal planning a snap, since I have everything I need in one place.
What about you, do you have a recipe binder?
