I’ve been meaning to put together a recipe book for a long time now. Since I get most of my recipes from online, it’s a pain to organized all the printed-out sheets. They end up getting crumpled or spilled on, and they’re never collected all in one place. I wanted a way to put together all of my favorite recipes that would be a little bit classier than a three-ring binder, and without spending tons of money on a cute recipe book.
Here’s what I came up with: a composition notebook covered with cut up file folders and some washi tape. It’s great, because I can hand-write recipes my grandma dictates to me over the phone, or tape in printed-out versions of ones I find online. Plus, it allows me to customize how it looks and make it more personal. I want to be able to pass it down to my daughter someday. I’m excited for all the yummy cooking and baking our small family will be doing together!
