recipe organization ideas
Hi - I love to cook and I tend to get a lot of recipes online rather than from a cookbook. I am wondering, does anyone else do this and how do you organize your recipes? I do am not a fan of electronic systems since cooking and computers don't really seem to be a good mix in my opinion. Instead, I just print the recipes from whichever website and I punch holes in the page and put in a binder. What I don't like about this system is that the binder is rather large and takes up a lot of space. Also, the pages aren't super sturdy so if I take a recipe out a lot (since the book is too big I often do this) the holes I punched tend to get a little pulled/stretched.
What do other people do to store recipes? Should I just commit to copying them onto recipe cards? I am not in love with that idea because cards are small and I tend to make notes about modifications as I go - but I just don't know if this binder idea is sustainable either.
And also what's your favorite method for organizing recipes and why?? Alphabetically, by course, by ingredient?
