Recipe Organization

I’m not doing a whole lot in the kitchen department right now.  Our AC is broken, AGAIN!!!  Paninis, salads, and lots of watermelon are dominating our summer menu and I can’t wait to get cooking and baking again when it cools down.  I have been looking through my collection of recipes that I have stuffed into a binder for fall inspiration and it is screaming to be organized!

How should I organize this chaos? In this digital era, the easiest way would be to create a folder on my desktop and scan in magazine recipes, but I am longing to be old school.  Look at what I found today…

I know, right?!  Isn’t it insanely cute.  Found at the lovely Sugar Paper, it sure costs a pretty penny,and doesn’t have a place for pictures, so isn’t ideal.

How have you found best to organize your recipes?  I would be super grateful for any suggestions!

    I have two white binders to hold my recipes. I created a two-month calendar of meals with recipes and shopping lists when I did Weight Watchers. Their recipes are still some of my favorite go-to recipes including… Pineapple Coconut Smoothie, Triple Berry Lassi, Roasted Vegetable Panini, Irish Soda Bread, Eggplant Parmesan Hero and Turkey and Red Pepper Panini…. yum! I own several of their cookbooks, but I still prefer to go to my binder. My other binder contains some of my favorite recipes from Martha Stewart,, and Williams & Sonoma. I put copies of the recipes in clear sheet protectors. I never have to worry about whether the pages get smudged. I can always wipe them clean without damaging the pages.

    However, with that said… I LOVE the pink recipe box! It is so cute. I’d be tempted to use both. I’d place the binders in my cupboard and keep only my 5-star recipes in the darling box! It’s so cute! I’d leave it on the counter!!
