Ode to My Recipe Box


I got this recipe box on a whim last year. We were at a craft store for something else and saw these on clearance by the check out lanes. They were super cheap so I had to get one, and a couple of extra packets of recipe cards.



I can't tell you how much I love having this. So many of the recipes I make I get from online. But I hate having my computer in the kitchen so I generally put it on the table in the dining room, but I also hate having to go back and forth to the table. Sometimes I will print the recipes, but then I don't have anywhere neat to put all the sheets of paper. I could just put them in a folder, but that's not as much fun. Now I generally make the recipe once, while looking at it online, and if I like it enough, I will write the recipe on a card so in the future I can just bring the card into the kitchen. I'm kind of a messy cook so it works out much better this way. Who cares if the card gets messy, but a computer on the other hand...

I bought one of these. Didn't use it. We do the computer on the bar thing while we cook sometimes too. Shaun has a HUGE 3-ring binder full of recipes he's printed from Food Network online.
