Organizing Recipes

Recipes are difficult to organize because they come in so many different sizes and shapes. I have two sizes of card files and also use a computer program and print out recipes to keep in a binder.

An idea from the book “Totally Organized” by Bonnie McCullough is to make a recipe index by listing favorite recipes with the page number and name of the cookbook they are in. You could set up a database searchable by type of recipe or ingredients if you feel very ambitious, but even a simple wordprocessing document is helpful.
