TIP 5 – MARK RECIPES YOU DON’T LIKE
If you have tried recipes from your recipe books and not liked them – then avoid cooking them again in the future by marking them in some way.
A simple note in pencil on the page would suffice if you were definitely going to keep the book, and if not then just use a post it note on the page.
Obviously – if the recipe came from anywhere else and you have saved it in a TO TRY file, then simply delete from this file!
TIP 6 – CREATE A NEW RECIPE HABIT
If you don’t actually make time to try new recipes, then all the collecting and organising will be for nothing.
One way I like to ensure I try new recipes regularly, but so that it doesn’t become too burdensome for us, is to have a slot in our weekly meal planner that is for a new recipe.
That way we can plan when we will have a bit more time (new recipes will take more time as you will be less sure and have to really read and follow them to the letter), and it adds a little change to the weeks food.
Whether you try a new recipe once a week, once a month, or some other amount of time – this should also show you how many recipes you should be keeping to try one day(!) – which leads me nicely to then next tip…
We are nearly there – the last, but probably the most important, tip is next – so let’s not hang around!….
