Creating custom recipe cards isn't all that difficult. Basically what you want to do is just find you recipe among all the other recipes that are stuffed inside of cookbooks, kitchen cabinet drawers, recipe file boxes. What better time than now to get your recipes in one place and have the looking sharp. Gather up all of your recipes, and get them organized.
Think about how you would like them to be organized. I have found that the old way of storing recipes on index cards just doesn't do it for me anymore. The print has to be small in order to get all the information on them, they get food spilled on them, and then I forget to put the recipe back where it belongs. So, then the recipe gets lost. After I heard of putting all the recipes into a 3 ring binder I was hooked. I love this idea.
There are a couple of ways of handling the recipes at this point.
I entered the recipe into the computer. Printed it out onto some light card stock, and added any notes that I feel is relevant to the recipe. Then I placed the recipe into a plastic sleeve. In the same plastic sleeve behind the newly printed recipe I place the original recipe.. As time goes on whenever I use one of the recipes I take a picture of what was prepared and add it to the recipe page. Just like regular cookbooks I divided my recipe book into different categories. I created the tabs to how I would find them or what made sense to me.
