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.
Try out the recipe on your own first before allowing guests or friends to taste it. Cook the recipe from a small amount of ingredients and see if it really tastes the way it should. If not you can always tweak the recipe a bit or find another recipe completely. You should also check out the comments left by other people below the recipes that you enjoy. There are so many people who try those recipes and they will comment about how their experience was. If they have provided any helpful suggestions or tips you should heed them since they have tried it already. You should also leave your own comments and suggestions about the recipe once you have tried it to help out other people who try out the same recipes. If there are any tips that you want to leave for them you will be doing a great service in return for a free recipe. If you are someone that loves to cook your own meals then having an electronic recipe keeper may be the ideal tool for you. The problem that many individuals have when it comes to recipes is improper organization.
The reality is that Red Velvet Cake is and has always been a chocolate cake. How can you bake a chocolate cake without using cocoa? Again how do you decide which recipe to expend your time energy and money on? I stay far away from food sites that offer member comments and reviews as some of the reviews are of no help and actually add to confusion. A few years ago I did an online recipe search for Turkey Mulligatawny Soup. I landed on a well revered food forum. This site also allows for member comments. I was shocked to see some of the comments made about this recipe. People who didnt have the spices called for in the recipe chose to cook the soup leaving them out.
