Let's Dish: How Do You Organize Your Recipes?

Aug 15 2008 - 8:00am

From recipe card filing systems to customized innovations like the tastebook [1], there are many ways to organize recipes. Still, if you own more than a dozen cookbooks [2], keep some of your family's recipes [3] on record, and have limited kitchen space, maintaining an organized cooking library can be tough.

I've always struggled to arrange my kitchen paperwork — treasured family recipes [4], cookbooks, personal creations, recipes I've come across online, and appliance instruction manuals — all in one place. The closest thing I have to a solution is a binder full of sheet protectors that are sorted by course, so that I can insert any printout, clip, handwritten recipe, or manual. It sits next to a shelf full of cookbooks with recipes that have been tabbed.

How about you? Have you found a recipe organizing solution that works for you? I'd love to hear about it!
