Finding and Organizing Recipes from Websites

February 1, 2007

Smoothie Recipe on iPadI have one email address that I use as my online cook book or archives. I send all of my recipe newsletters to that address and have created folders that I store all my recipes in. I also copy and paste recipes that I find online and email them to myself.


It is very handy because the title tells which recipe it is and I can search quickly. I can also email them to others in a jiffy. When it's time to write the weekly menus, I go here to see what looks good. I can also look for recipes that fit ingredients I already have. Here are my topics:

4th of July, Beans, Beef, Bread, Breakfast, Candy, Cheese, Chicken, Chinese Food, Christmas, Cookies, Crockpot, Desserts, Directions, Flylady, Good Ideas, Herbs, Kidstuff, Low Carb, Lunch, Main Dishes, Mexican, Pie, Pasta, Potatoes and Veggies, Soup, Salads, Sauces and Dressings, Seafood, Snacks, Soup, Substitutions, Thanksgiving, Tofu, Bisquick, Drinks, Home Remedies, Ice Cream, Pork, and Pressure Cooker. Funny, no Zebra recipes.

When I find a internet recipe I'd like to try, I copy it to a blank email and print it. I then cut it to size and scotch tape it to the inside of my kitchen cabinet, where I'm not likely to forget that I was going to try something new.

I used to constantly buy cookbooks. Either the large cookbooks in the books section of the store, or the small ones near the registers. Then I discovered I could get the same recipes for free online!

When I open your daily tips at the end of the week I simply print out what interests me. I put it into a folder and take it to my daughter's home the next week.

I love to collect recipes. It has become a great hobby of mine. I have recipes sent to me from friends, groups, clubs etc.


One extra way I get some super recipes is going right into the Manufacturer's website.
