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.
You may want to keep the album with an overall uniform look or have each individual page have a unique look. You can use recipe cards or journaling blocks for the ingredients and instructions. You may also want to include a photo of the dish or a picture of the person who gave you the recipe. Consider adding comments about why you love the dish or opinions from your family on why it is one of their favorites. Try journaling about the history of the recipe or any special memories you have about it. Making the album personal is what scrapbooking is all about. Scrapbooking recipes doesnt have to be limited to a recipe album. Think about including recipes in other scrapbooks. Highlight the recipe for witchs brew on a Halloween page layout. Recipes on Thanksgiving pages are an obvious choice. Include your secret recipe for perfect gravy. How about including the recipes for the dinner you made for your husband on your first Valentines Day? You can also include your grandmothers apple pie recipe on a page all about your memories of her.
