Recipe Book Instead of storing your recipes in the "haphazard shoebox" fashion how about converting them into a nice recipe book? If most of your recipes are on index or recipe cards a photo album with plastic sleeves may work particularly well for you as long as the card fits comfortably in the slot. If you have quite a large collection of recipes try obtaining a large family photo album that allows eight to twelve slots per sleeve (front and back). The order you put the cards in is totally up to you as your recipe book should reflect your preference. Some people prefer to sort based on main dishes desserts breads/pastries beverages etc. while others prefer alphabetical order. If you dont have your recipes on cards or if youre like most people you might have your recipes on papers and cards of all shapes and sizes. If this is the case you might want to think about typing them all up and printing them off.
You may want to keep the album with an overall uniform look or have each individual page have a unique look. You can use recipe cards or journaling blocks for the ingredients and instructions. You may also want to include a photo of the dish or a picture of the person who gave you the recipe. Consider adding comments about why you love the dish or opinions from your family on why it is one of their favorites. Try journaling about the history of the recipe or any special memories you have about it. Making the album personal is what scrapbooking is all about. Scrapbooking recipes doesnt have to be limited to a recipe album. Think about including recipes in other scrapbooks. Highlight the recipe for witchs brew on a Halloween page layout. Recipes on Thanksgiving pages are an obvious choice. Include your secret recipe for perfect gravy. How about including the recipes for the dinner you made for your husband on your first Valentines Day? You can also include your grandmothers apple pie recipe on a page all about your memories of her.
For example you can choose from several interesting bread recipes some of which use an affordable main ingredient - brown rice flour. Popular free cooking blogs are also a wonderful resource for recipes and they often have plenty of comments from blog followers who have also tested the recipes and shared their experiences. Celiac disease websites may have recipe indexes although they dont always contain recipe reviews; many of these websites do offer lists of links to recipe archives featuring the reviews you want to read. When searching for gluten free recipe reviews be sure that the website has an impartial focus - in other words recipes should not be touting a specific gluten free product recipe book or catering service. Sometimes the reviews found on "corporate" websites may not be authentic. Its better to look for recipe indexes that dont attempt to sell a food item or cookbook. Often online marketplaces like Amazon.com will offer good deals on items or recipe books - in general the reviews posted on these sites will be more accurate and trustworthy. To be certain a review is reliable look for tags like "Amazon verified purchase" at the top of the review - then youll know for certain that the person leaving the review actually obtained and used the recipe book. At Amazon it is possible to leave reviews without buying or trying a product so there is the possibility of deceptive positive or negative customer reviews. In general public recipe archives without a "sales-y" focus will have fail-safe reviews from everyday people; they are probably the safest best for your needs. Parents with children who have special gluten free dietary needs will also be excellent sounding boards for all types of recipes. Parenting forums can be filled with recipes and commentary on their usefulness. Since parents must prepare practical tasty meals for children (who may balk at bad-tasting meals) they will often share their success stories with other parents. Visiting these boards can be a useful way to find meal options that will appeal to almost anyone.
