You may remember this post. I have finally got around to transferring the recipes from my recipe journal onto cards and filing them in my lovely recipe box.
The box is so much better then the journal because it is so flexible. I can make the different categories as big or as small as I please. If I make a mess of a card I can simply start a fresh one. I can write, draw or stick things on them.
As you can see I have written some recipes out very simply, sometimes just as a reminder of ingredient quantities. Some are much more detailed, Some have pages from my recipe journal stuck on them, some have photocopies from the journal or from other books and some are printouts from this blog (I do actually refer to the blog for recipes quite often). I like this mishmash of styles.
When the children leave home it will be an easy matter to photocopy the recipes they want -chocolate fudge pudding for example- so that they can take away their own collection of family favourites.
Now, just let me find the card with the Fork Biscuit recipe........ah, there it is.
