As a cookbook writer and full-on foodie, you can imagine what my desk must look like. Yes, it is stacked with cookbooks, food magazines and recipes torn from magazines, printed from the Internet or scribbled furiously on my ever-present legal yellow pad. I have recipes; oh boy do I have recipes.
I had finally had enough of the mess and decided I did want to see the top of my desk again. I knew I'd have to really tackle the paper and get busy, so I put my little office supplies in order and planned my attack.
And then, low and behold, in my email that same day are some tips for organizing your recipes from a popular magazine. Who knew? Yeah, those would work, if only I was born organized! So in lieu of their ideas (although two of them I already use), I'm going to give you my ideas on how to organize your recipes and menus. These really work. If I can use them successfully, anyone can!
That's it. Now, you have a fast and easy method for getting all your recipes in order!
