I'm not sure about you, but when it comes to cooking I'm very old fashioned. I love to have a hard copy of what I'm cooking in front of me! But all the hard copies needs a home to live in as they quickly become a messy stack of paper.
A Recipe book is a very personal thing to own. I have hand written recipes from even my Grandmother that she wrote while she was still alive so my recipe book becomes a book full of good memories that needs to be kept safe and cherished.
I decided on 6 headings for my file: snacks, starters, mains, sides, puddings and a heading called "must try" for all of those recipes you tear out of magazines and still need to try before it gets your stamp of approval.
I bought 6 colorful and happy scrap booking pages which I measured and cut to be able to fit my 6 headings in perfectly. I then cut the headings out and stuck in the correct positions. I covered only the label part in sellotape to protect it from my messy hands while I'm busy in the kitchen.
Next I punched holes and added into the file. I also created a recipe book page that I can just fill in, or have someone fill in for me to add to the file. You can download it here for free.
