It is also goes to show why restaurants are certainly a credible authority and why someone may go out of their way to imitate or copy a recipe or two. If you were to choose any one of your favorite restaurants or even one that may just be starting up this same basic description will apply. This restaurant will make a discovery of a new method or combination of sauces or seasonings for a new food recipe. I should say they work at making the discovery putting in time and effort initially so this new recipe could be tried and tested over and over until finally reaching the menu. The restaurant may advertise the new release to let the public know it has a great new recipe to come in and try out. Ideally it becomes a success and a featured item on their menu.
Remember earlier I mentioned that 49% of the dollar spent on food is shared in the restaurant industry? That is a lot of dough that one can save! Money or the spending of it is actually how and why I began to take note of these restaurant imitation recipes. I have been reviewing our family spending habits and when looking at groceries vs. dining I was actually pretty shocked. Dining out has become a habit for us and while it is one that we do enjoy it is also one that has been adding up significantly. This is what started that flickering of the old light bulb for myself and my family. I consider myself to be in that DIY group of people on a number of things and while I have come to enjoy doing many things myself (Not all of the time mind you.) I realize the impact of learning how to do something yourself can and has saved me a good amount of money.
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. Sites like WeGottaEat and OneTSP are free to sign up and allow you to add your own recipes by simply typing them up. Yes this can be quite tedious if you have a lot of recipes but just imagine how easy it will be to find a recipe by simply typing in a keyword and clicking "search." You can also browse thorough members recipes and send recipes to friends and family. Online recipe storage sites are very user friendly so you dont have to be particularly computer savvy to utilize this great feature.
Some categories may become very large if this happens consider breaking them into subcategories. Main courses could be broken into Hot and Cold or Vegetarian and Meat. Alphabetize your recipes within each category once you have them sorted. While youre sorting have you been coming across recipes that no one liked you never made or are something youve found a better recipe for? Now is the time to purge your collection. Dont put back recipes you arent going to use again now that you have everything spread out. Recipes you didnt like can just go into the recycling. If it is a recipe you still want to try I would suggest one of two options.
