Ideas for organizing recipes

krissywats | Jan 2, 2006 02:12 AM

Hi everyone and a Tasty New Year to you all! We are moving next saturday and one thing I am determined to do in my new kitchen is organize my recipes. What I have currently is many books, many online recipes (I'm happy with how those are organized) and a huge stack of printed recipes that I gathered online. These last ones are the issue. I have never found a satisfactory way of organizing these hundreds of recipes into something I can use. I don't want to enter them or scan them (that would take forever) but I have no clue how to organize them as they are. As of right now if I am looking for a particular recipe I have to leaf through the entire foot tall stack of single sheets (then normally I overlook it and have to go through it again only to see it was at the bottom)...any ideas?

I was thinking a seperate folder for each course/type of food (Soups/Stews, Desserts, Appetizers, Entrees, etc) - in this age of computer technology I am finding the idea of a recipe box just isn't going to cut it.....

Thanks in advance!!
