Over the past five years I have been gathering recipes. I figure it must be a “wife thing.” I feel as though I’m coming into my own role and wanted to start a recipe book of my own. My mom always had tons of books and recipes in binders when I was growing up, so I must get it from her. Her infamous carrot cake and spinach dip recipes will both be featured on my blog in the near future for you all to enjoy.
When I find a recipe that I like in a magazine or on a website, I print it or cut it out. Then, I put it into a clear plastic cover (the cover also prevents it from getting dirty when I’m cooking.) I have tabs in my binder that are categorized as Event Ideas (cute decorative items), Appetizers, Soups, Breads, Mains and Desserts. You can add anything you like.
Just sit down with all your goodies, a good TV show or movie (don’t forget a glass of wine) and start organizing!
