Even though life has been a bit crazy lately (read: running between work, Junior League meetings, friends and family) I love the simple joy of taking some time to make a home cooked meal. Even if it’s as simple as throwing together a crockpot dish, I love trying new recipes- and old-time favorites!
I am a bit old fashioned in my recipe organization and I’m not ashamed 🙂 I love handwritten recipes, each and every one tells a story and brings back memories. I have ones handwritten by my mom, giving me tips for cooking; ones written my girlfriends, reminding me of the fun we had making them together; and ones written by me, that I bring back fond times I had cooking for loved ones.
But when you have so many recipes, you have to have a great way to organize them! I file mine away by “type of dish”- appetizers, side dish, main dishes, and desserts. Then within these main categories I break them down by main ingredient. This makes is super simple for me to find whatever I am looking for!
How do you organize your recipes? Do you organize them physically or digitally?
