As I’ve said before I often use the Taste of Home recipe magazines to create my weekly menu plans. I really am addicted to these magazines which means my collection has grown over time. Keeping track of recipes I want to try and “keeper” recipes can be a challenge. A couple of weeks ago my friend Annie over at Reflections of a Godly Girl shared how she keeps track of her favorite recipes. So this week I’d like to share how I keep track of my favorite “magazine” recipes. I use a recipe journal.
First here is a picture of my magazine recipe collection. I have these sorted by magazine type (ie: Quick Cooking, Light and Tasty, etc) and date:
Here is the recipe journal I use:
I have a section I can keep track of recipes I want to try but more importantly at the back (as pictured above) is where I record the “favorite” recipes. Recipes that the family approves of and that I would definitely make again. I just jot down the name of the recipe, the magazine it came from, the date and month of the magazine and of course the page number. Saves me so much time and frustration. Works wonderfully!
