Here’s a simple idea that has almost solved all my problems in this department: organizing recipes into photo albums. Each category—beverages, breads, appetizers & snacks, etc…—gets its own album and label, of course. And if you stumble across spare time and inclination (I haven’t yet), you could replace the cardstock inserts on the covers with colors or patterns that compliment your kitchen. Not only am I more organized for this convenient system, but the boys (and Eden eventually) have their own recipe albums as well, and after they have made a recipe successfully, they get to add it to their book of tried and tested recipes they can make independently.
