If you're anything like me, you have recipes gathered from a variety of sources.
Hand-written recipes jotted down on the fly from online browsing sessions,
recipes torn out of food magazines, and some printed off from favourite sources,
all make up my stash of foods-to-someday-try.
I don't transfer a recipe to my tried-and-true recipe box collection
until I know that it's a keeper.
On one of my recent trips to see my sister, she pulled out her recipe binder.
It had recipes within its covers neatly organized into categories
and three-hole-punched and filed away. All in one place. Brilliant!
included her wonderful idea for laminated dividers.
A few weeks passed, and after a little percolating in my brain,
these two ideas merged into one. A collision of sorts.
This is what has come of that.
I got out my scrapbook papers, paper cutter, and three hole punch, and went to town.
All my loose recipe papers were gathered and categorized.
I cut the scrapbook papers to 9" x 11" and made tabs by cutting the paper to 8.5"
up to the place where the tab would be cut out.
Prior to laminating, the tabs were labelled and three-hole punched.
After laminating, the edges were trimmed, and a single hole punch was used
to remove the plastic that filled up those holes.
There you have it. A simple (and pretty) solution for those random
recipes collected while browsing online (or elsewhere) for inspiration and ideas.
How do you deal with all your recipes?
Is your system like this one, or, do you have a different method?
Please tell all. Inquiring minds want to know.
With Love, Camille
