    Do you use recipe cards to keep records of recipes? :sete_055::sete_055::sete_055::sete_055:

    :) Ha ! How did that happen ? I use either the little index cards from the dollar store or just cut them from the newspaper ! Then I tape them in one of the journals also from the dollar store ! Then if the recipe is not one I want to keep,, the tape easily peels off and the recipe can be replaced ! Some of the recipes sound good on paper,, not so good on the plate !

    Mart I used to cook regular hot meals besides cakes but when I met hubby...he refused me and told me after having food poisoning years ago, he liked cooking his own meals..twice I asked him and in the end I said get on with it :whistling:

    He sounds a bit like me ! I enjoy cooking,, its sort of an art form ! I like creating it ! May not follow any recipe and rarely use one,, but if you like good old southern comfort food,, come to my house !
    We never go out and eat ! I know my food is safe,, do not know about others ! Too many recalls and contaminated vegetables !

    Hello mart, he got it from chicken and ended up in hospital but I've known him do right concoctions and they've turned out lovely in flavour :rofl:...we used to go out at the end of each month and have a meal but not no more, we've found prices stupid and hardly anything for the money on the plate.

    What do you think of transferring old recipe cards onto tea towels?

    @Petronius a recipe on kitchen towel? that's a gr8 idea! something short and sweet like some simple cookie.

    I don't use recipe cards, I always just use whatever is available in the fridge, and prepare it in one of a couple different methods, every once in a while there's a dish that turns out crazy good, and other times not so good... I do mostly all the cooking and I strive to make dishes that can feed everyone and require little effort / time.

    my GF on the other hand, when she cooks, she uses a recipe, and slaves in the kitchen for hours!(sometimes) of course it always comes out gr8 and she likes to think shes the better cook, and i let her think that. :whistling:

    Adam you allow it because you don't want to make the effort yourself [​IMG]

    I either cut recipes out of magazines, newspapers, print from online sources or write down ones that interest me. They go in binders. Every year I fthrow out the ones that I never got round to or didn't impress me. Most stay in binders but some that become favourites, get taped on the inside of cupboard doors. And those get edited too.
