Kitchen Tip Tuesday: Recipe Notebook

It's time for Kitchen Tip Tuesday at Tammy's Recipes. Take a trip over there for some great tips and recipes from our fellow bloggers! http://www.tammysrecipes.com/node/1755

I don't have a recipe today, but a tip to keep track of the ones you find on line and would like to try. I used to either bookmark them, which takes up room on my toolbar, or print them out--which is more paperwork in a house already inundated with the stuff.

Solution: a cute little notepad. I bought mine when Target had their dollar deals on sale 75% off, so it cost me a quarter. It's got a chocolate lab puppy on the front.

Inside, I jot down the names of recipes and where to find them on line. The notepad is no bigger than my hand, so it takes up very little space. I plan to keep it right here on my desk, next to the laptop.

After I make a recipe, if I like it, I'll make a nicer copy to put into my recipe folder. In the meantime, having this little recipe notebook helps reduce all the papers around here!

Good tip! I am always forgetting where I saw a certain recipe. Also need to do that for sewing tutorials!

It's so wierd how I *just* realized I could freeze berries. It's like, "duh", lol. I think I thought they would stick together but they don't, obviously. I'm just so excited about it, lol
I'm picking up a bunch of strawberries on sale tomorrow, so I'll be cutting and freezing those as well! Smoothies and tasty, healthy treats galore! :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

That's a good idea. I usually copy the recipes I want to try into a word file called "blog recipes" along with the place I found them. (so I can link back to them on my menu) If I like the recipe I keep it, if I don't, I delete it. Your idea would be handier.

Now that's a good idea. Why didn't I think of that?

I like to bookmark the recipes I want to try in del.icio.us. I can categorize them and access them from any computer. Plus family and friends can check out the interesting recipes I've found. Just a thought.
