If you're like me, you get too many magazines. the upside to this is that I am constantly discovering new recipes. I love to try to make new things and this little recipe binder that I've made is an easy way to keep track of recipes I'd like to try and ones I've tried and liked.
What I do is rip out the recipes that look promising, punch holes in them, and file them under the categories of: breakfast, appetizers, mains, soups, desserts, and entertaining.
I also have a little rating system for the ones I've attempted:
One star = bad, rip this recipe out (so I really don't have any one star recipes)
Two stars = really time consuming and just okay, think twice before making again
Three stars = good, make this again
Four stars = really good, add to the regular rotation
Five stars = awesome, make this to impress people with your mad skills
This makes it easy when flipping through to remember which recipes worked and which did not.
Any fellow recipe binder owners out there? If you have any other tips or ideas, please share!
