Recipe Round Up

I don't really have a recipe box.  I do have this small box that holds a few recipes people have given me on recipe cards, but most of my recipes are either torn out of magazines or printed from the internet. I was having a hard time keeping track of my favorites, so I decided to get them organized!

3 ring binder
sheet protectors
label tabs
pile of magazines/print outs

I started by tearing out all the recipes I liked in my stack of magazines.  Then I organized them into different categories.

Next came placing all of the recipes into the plastic sleeves and adding the label tabs.

I printed out "table of contents" pages for the beginning of each section.  As I add a recipe to a section, I just write down what it is so I have an easy reference!

Isn't it pretty? ;-)

Easy Peasy!

And, coming this for:
Butternut Squash Risotto
Lazy Greek Chicken
Stir Fried Chicken Paprikash
Butternut Squash and Red Onion Pizza



  1. I should have come over to keep you company during this craft- I need to do this too...desperately :) I think my blog is turning into my recipe book though :)

  2. I guess I need to do this. My file folder is getting full and very unorganized. I have room for the binder in the motorhome, also.
