Which is great, because we don't have any shelves full of cookbooks. Years ago, I decided that cookbooks were meant to be ripped apart page by page. Really. Every cookbook/cooking magazine I own will eventually be torn apart. I keep the good recipes, and I throw away the ones I will never try. The good ones get put into one of my four cooking notebooks:
These notebooks are full of page protectors and recipe card holders, so when I find a recipe that I like, no matter what format it's in, I can put it right into the notebook. No copying recipes onto tiny cards. Who has time for that? Here are some of the recipe types you'll find in my notebooks:
I love that last picture because it shows a scrap of paper where a friend scribbled down a recipe for my husband one day. I really don't rewrite anything- I just throw it in the notebook.
I also don't put recipes into my notebooks until I've tried them at least once. Every time I find some new recipes I would like to try, I stick them in the front pocket of the appropriate notebook. I don't put them into the notebook until I know we like them. And if something doesn't turn out well, the recipe goes in the trash. Why bother keeping a recipe you're not going to use again? :)
I hope I've given you some ideas to think about. If you decide to make your own set of cooking notebooks, let me know how it turns out. Happy organizing!
