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.
You can find albums with a recipe theme as well as stickers paper and embellishments to complement the scrapbook. The main thought behind scrapbooking recipes is the same as using photos and memories. We want to preserve the recipes for future generations. However recipe albums are very popular as gift items as well. Some scrapbookers are even using them in their kitchens as cookbooks. To begin designing a recipe scrapbook you need to think about your purpose for creating it. Will this be an album documenting family recipes handed down from generation to generation? Or are you creating an album to give as a gift? If this is a recipe album meant to be used in the kitchen you also may approach the design differently and choose a scrapbook that will be more durable. Albums come in a variety of sizes including 4x6 5x7 and 12x12 inches. Choose the one that will best fit your goal for scrapbooking recipes. Decide whether or not this will be a gift album. You may not want to use the original recipe card written by your great-grandmother in a gift recipe scrapbook. You still could make the recipes personal by writing the ingredients and instructions in your own handwriting instead of a computer font. Recipe albums make welcome gifts for weddings graduations Christmas or housewarming gifts. Which recipes to choose will depend on your goal for the album. You may want to use quick and easy recipes for a graduation gift. Holiday favorites would be ideal for a Christmas gift. You could also narrow down the recipe choices to just desserts soups main dishes or family favorites. When you begin to design your recipe album decide if you want to keep the same layout format for each page and if you will coordinate the embellishments on each page.
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.
