Do not despair however because there are many cheaper (or free) ways to find some delicious vegan recipes! At Your Library Check out your local library and you might be lucky to find a couple of vegan recipe e-books available for you to loan. When you get home make sure you either write out or type out your favorite recipes in the book before its time to return it! See if theres a chapter on easy and quick vegan recipes and make sure you also jot a few of these recipes down. You will thank yourself for doing this later on when you are too busy or tired to spend hours in the kitchen! In any (non-vegan) recipe book You do not necessarily have to look in vegan recipe books to find vegan recipes! Any good recipe book should have some great ideas for you to make which are already meat and dairy free (e.g.: soups salads and stir-frys).
You could admit you arent really going to try it and recycle it or you can create a "recipes to try" category in your home filing system. This category is great when you are looking for something different or exciting! Then when you finally try them for the first time you can either file them into one of categories you created or recycle them! Storing Paper Recipes: If you have varying size pages a standard recipe box probably isnt your best choice for storage and now that you have your recipes sorted and alphabetized youll want just the right container. The good news is there are several economic choices for new containers to start your home filing system. A simple notebook can be used. Staple or tape your recipes to the pages and then use the space around them to make notes about them as you try them. Make sure to leave blank pages in each category so you can add additional recipes.
From car repairs to home carpentry it also has opened my eyes to appreciate what others are doing as a business for their livelihoods. It has helped make a difference in wiser spending as well as saving money even if I do not do something myself. Knowing that my family has developed this habit of eating out more than eating at home getting them to eat typical home cooked meals more often is not going to be to easy. The flickering light bulb moment or idea mentioned earlier was to see about getting some recipes from the restaurants that I could cook at home with the idea of saving some money initially. I also began to see how we have lost touch with the skill of cooking. We sure have all become masters of the microwave but the rest of the kitchen starts to get a little sketchy.
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.
