Taking A Recipe From The Past - And Never Lose It Again
Sometimes the simplest and most basic solutions are the best. Take organizing recipes for example. Some folks try to organize their recipes online. That’s fine for storage but what do you do when it’s time to actually make the recipe? Put your computer in the kitchen? Even if you have a laptop, the kitchen counter is probably the least safe place you could put it. Liquid and computers don’t mix. You could print the recipe out each time you need it but that’s a real hassle. You could also just run back and forth from your computer to the kitchen. That means of course that you’ll have to memorize each step which again is another hassle.
Why not use the same tried and true solution your great grandmother used, and probably your grandmother and your mother too? The good “old fashioned” recipe box. Of course it doesn’t have to be “old fashioned.” MySecretPantry offers recipe boxes in a variety of designs and materials including stainless steel. Whether you have a modern kitchen or prefer classic country, you can find one to fit your taste. They also offer recipe cards to write or print your favorite recipes on. Stick with what works, organize your recipes today, before they get lost or eaten by the dog. Grab a recipe box and recipe cards today.
