After all of your recipes are transferred to this new format the next step is to get a binder (three ring binders work well) and some tabbed dividers. Label each divider by the category you wish (ie: type of meal alphabetical order etc.) and get to work punching holes in your recipe sheets to accommodate the binders rings. If you prefer you can purchase plastic sleeves to keep your sheets spill-proof-which is highly recommended to counter those splatters of sauce batter or grease that always tend to smudge our favorite recipes. Whether you use a photo album or a binder dont be afraid to get creative with your recipe book. Get some construction paper and glue or clip clip pictures from magazines. Theres nothing wrong with adding a dash of imagination that might even inspire your cooking! eRecipe Catalog The Internet is not only a great place to search through millions of recipes but its also handy for storing the ones you already have.

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.
Sugar might be added to a chili or soup recipe to sweeten it more. If youre very vigilant when you look through recipes then you will be ok. However if youre not careful then some recipes may contain ingredients that you dont want to include. Thats why specialty low carb websites and blogs are better sources for low carb recipes. How do you find these blogs? Well its not as easy to find them at first because just googling for "low carb blogs" can generate a lot of lists of blogs that are outdated and no longer running. It can also generate many pages of results that you dont find all that interesting and dont really want to spend time trawling through. So the best way is really to start with one blog that you enjoy and to keep reading it. Over time if its a good blog theyre usually mention other bloggers who do similar things. Other bloggers might also post comments on the blog youre reading offering cooking tips or recipe suggestions. These would be good people to check out. You can even start a conversation with them as most bloggers are very friendly and love to talk about their area of interest.
