It is standard operating procedure in my family to have a recipe book with about seventy-five thousand loose recipes hanging out in it between the pages. Most of these accumulate right inside the cover, a few are buried in the center. We make fun of mom for this, but it happened to me!
I started a recipe binder years ago, when I left for college. It’s just an old red binder with construction paper dividers for different classes of recipes: breads, desserts, main dishes, etc. Well, random paper creep happened, and all of the sudden I had an exploding full book with recipes on post it notes, scraps of paper and even on the back of envelopes! It was insanity. So, I’ve finally managed to re-write all of them onto looseleaf paper and secure them in the binder. Now, everything is organized and right where I can find it. I like it, but mom did sound a little sad when I told her….
