I'm getting a lot a great new recipes from Pinterest. For the most part, most of the recipes I've tried have turned out really well. And with all these great new recipes, I needed a new way to store them.
In the past, I've written my recipes on 3x5 cards and stored them in a file box. My file box was getting really full which made it hard to find what I needed. I also didn't want to to redo all my 3x5 cards. I bought four new file boxes at Walmart for $1.00 each. Now I have more room for my 3x5 recipe cards, its easier to find things, and I didn't have spend any time rewriting or retyping any recipes!
I also started a binder (idea from Pinterest of course) for recipes I find online. I just print out the recipe, put it in a plastic page protector, and it goes in the binder.
Here's a recipe I found on Pinterest for Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms. It was something I liked and plan to make again, so it went in the binder.
I still have lots of recipes I've pulled out of magazines that aren't organized. I'm really tempted to just take them all and throw them in the trash rather than spending hours trying to get them organized. That's one of the things I love about Pinterest - you can collect all those recipes without the paper clutter!
I've also organized the recipes here on my blog! Now you can find a recipe quickly on the the Recipe Index page.
