My hobby is cooking. I didnt realize it until I was showing a friend of mine how to prepare and cook a Moroccan Chicken Pie that it hit me. I really enjoy cooking. I will spend days in the kitchen making Indian or Persian or Moroccan dishes and invite my friends to a feast. My husband thinks Im crazy my friends think Im an amazing cook and I have the best time introducing my friends to new cuisines. I own 52 cookbooks and depending on what Im cooking they are always my first source for recipes and information especially when cooking ethnic dishes.
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.
They certainly dont have to be expensive either. Most cost about the same as a nice dinner for two and can include extra information from making wine to growing your own herbs if you are in to that. It is really pretty incredible what some have included along with the recipe books they are promoting. As with anything do take some time to review before making any purchase of course but once you do get your feet wet have some fun and be prepared to be amazed with the results. You sit down to plan the menu for the week and get ready for another trip to the grocery store. There was that recipe you made a couple weeks ago that everyone loved where is it? You dig through handwritten papers torn out magazine pages and tattered index cards.
