In a very long and blabby post a little while ago I mentioned my recipe book. I know, how boring. But it’s important to me, mmmkay?? I’m going to need a new one soon….
And so far I’ve found the following ideas:
I think this is my favourite in the practical stakes. I’m not a big fan of using a file, but I think that’s the way to keep things organised, for sure. Also, not keen on having to rewrite recipes, but I suppose I could just stick a recipe cut out in the big space.
I like the cover of this binder/file:
Again, not so keen on using a file, but plastic sleeves (UK: plastic wallets/pockets) solve the problem of different sized recipes (cut out from magazines, handwritten on scrap paper, etc). Bonus: on the website I can download the templates for that pretty file cover free 🙂
This one is pretty much the same idea, except without the plastic sleeves. She’s prettied it up with scrapbooking paper and things like that, and prefers to type up her recipes. Won’t be doing that.
I love the vintagey look of this lettering:
Oh boy. I think I’ve found my winner. Even if it weren’t the perfect solution, uh, it’s a Cath. And I love a Cath.
So it wins.
This is the info about what’s inside:
The outside is pretty (pretty – check)
On the inside cover it has conversion charts (useful – check)
Tabbed sections to categorise recipes (practical – check)
It is a ring binder but also has pockets for cut-outs and ready-to-use punched pages for writing out recipes (works for all the different kinds of recipes I have – check)
Trust Cath xxxx
