TIP 2 – STORE YOUR FAVOURITE RECIPES & THOSE STILL TO TRY IN SEPARATE PLACES
When you create a place for all the recipes that you have tried, that the family love, and that you will use again and again, it is a pleasure to go there and pick things to cook.
You don’t have any worries that the recipes won’t work, and you will have made your very own personalised recipe book full of dishes that are loved. Perfect!
Question is – what do you do with the recipes that you want to store somewhere safe that you will want to try in the future?
The trick is to create a second file for this type of recipe.
If you mix your RECIPE FILE and your TO TRY then it will become less easy to find what you love, and you will soon stop using the system altogether.
Always remember that the TO TRY recipes are your very own aspirational recipe book – only when you have tried them and loved them will they work their way into your main recipe file.
TIP 3 – MAKE RECIPES EASY TO FIND
Whether you choose to store your recipes in a digital or paper version – it is vital that they are stored in an organised way.
That involves filing!
Just as with any filing you do, you want to ensure that everything you need is really easy to find when you need it. Otherwise you will stop using it altogether.
Split your recipes into categories that make sense for you, and don’t have too many categories as it can get too confusing.
If your recipes are a pleasure to use then you will get more use out of them and all the work to get them organised will pay off.
I’m all for making things simple – so by now you should be thinking of having two sets of recipes – those you already love and those that you want to try.
Both sets should be easy to use and easy to find things in.
It’s pretty easy to know what to store in the trusted recipes file – but how do you go about finding ones to try?
