Do not despair however because there are many cheaper (or free) ways to find some delicious vegan recipes! At Your Library Check out your local library and you might be lucky to find a couple of vegan recipe e-books available for you to loan. When you get home make sure you either write out or type out your favorite recipes in the book before its time to return it! See if theres a chapter on easy and quick vegan recipes and make sure you also jot a few of these recipes down. You will thank yourself for doing this later on when you are too busy or tired to spend hours in the kitchen! In any (non-vegan) recipe book You do not necessarily have to look in vegan recipe books to find vegan recipes! Any good recipe book should have some great ideas for you to make which are already meat and dairy free (e.g.: soups salads and stir-frys).
First the recipe box or book can get lost. This is especially true after moving from one residence to the next. Also a recipe box or book can be destroyed due to fire or water. And once its gone its gone forever. But there is another method of safe-guarding your recipes for the long term: an electronic recipe keeper. And when I say "electronic recipe keeper" I am not referring to the cheap poor quality ones that you can buy for a few bucks. Those are like the personal organizers that were popular a few years back. Modern electronic recipe keepers are far superior. One major difference from the previous versions (and the main benefit over recipe boxes and books) is the ability to store a back up copy of all of your recipes online. So even if your electronic recipe keeper were to get destroyed or stolen all of your recipes would still be safe. Sure youd have to purchase a new electronic recipe keeper but youd have access to all of your beloved recipes. But having all of your recipes backed up isnt the only benefit.
Whether you handwrite recipes or print them out they should be easy to read. Do not print recipes in a cursive font. Will your gift or gifts include samples? If you share cookie recipes your gift may include a dozen cookies. Bread recipes may include a loaf of French bread. Jam and jelly recipes may include a sample in a decorative jar. At this time of year cooking supply manufacturers produce holiday jars decorative lids and tins. Do you need to credit a cookbook author or relative? This is a precautionary measure and you may not have to do it. Still its nice to credit a family member or friend. You may credit the person in the title such as Aunt Ediths All Beef Meatloaf. Its my understanding that making three changes to a recipe title measurement ingredients make the recipe yours. Are you going to add something extra? You may put a collection of slow cooker recipes in a new cooker. Candy recipes may be packaged in a candy dish or jar. Casserole recipes may include a lasagna pan. When I made cookbooks for family members I included a rubber spatula with each one. Once you start thinking about extras you will come up with dozens of ideas. Dieting is never easy but with the growth of the internet its definitely become easier. You dont have to sit around flipping through book after book to find a good recipe.
