Use a Photo Album for Recipes


My tip is for keeping your recipes that you print from the internet in order. My friend gave me a beautiful photo album that had a fruit design. I thought "Wow, this would look nice on a shelf in my kitchen." I then thought that it would be a great place to keep all the great recipes I find online that I had printed out. Now when I cook a recipe the recipe does not get messed up because the album pages keep the recipes clean.

Thanks for sharing this idea. I've done very much the same thing with my recipes. Several years ago I bought several 3-ring binders and clear economy weight sheet protectors at Walmart and I store all of my recipes in the sheet protectors.

Sure beats having to prop up a recipe book. The advantage is that I can remove the recipe from the notebook and place it next to me where I'm working. And the pages wipe off easily if they can splattered.

When each of my kids moved out into their own homes, I made a personalized cook book for each of them with their favorite family recipes in them, using dollar store photo albums. My DIL likes using it, as does my granddaughter. (09/24/2007)

This is a great idea. I do something perhaps similar. I buy page protectors which are acid free and archival safe. I print a recipe from the internet on both sides of the paper and slip into a page protector and then place the pages in a binder. This works really well. My recipe pages stay clean, they are easy to read and I make up my own cookbooks with the recipes I really like. When you buy cookbooks, usually you only make a handful of the recipes from the entire book. It's someone else's idea of good recipes but when I put one together myself, I know it's the kinds of recipes my family really likes! (09/25/2007)

Thank you for a great idea, I have been saving my recipes and just putting them in a binder. I was trying of figure out an inexpensive way to make them into an album. (Well, book really) As I said in previous posts, my husband is a professional chef (32 years, but who's counting) I had an entire wall of our dining room built out with shelving to display all of his cookbooks. It's true you might only use one or two recipes from one book but when you are a professional, you want the whole enchilada. I'm with you, save my favorites for the one day a week I have to cook.

I made 10 of these with my favorite recipes and gave them away as Christmas gifts last year. They were a hit. (06/26/2008)
