Tackle It Tuesday - My Recipe Collection

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


I love to cook, and I love to use recipes. I really enjoy the excitement of finding a recipe that has already been proven to be successful, and then attempting to replicate the meal. I have a dozen cookbooks and dozens and dozens of recipe cards. The recipe cards are my favorites! These are recipes that friends and family have taken the time to write out for me to enjoy. I received most of these during my bridal shower a number of years ago. To me, there is something more fun in making my aunt’s yummy corn pudding or my cousin’s delicious chicken dish, to Martha Stewart’s springtime dessert collection!

Anyhow, this week’s tackle is putting some order to my recipe box. It has been a mess – cards all over the place, in no particular order. I have needed to put some sequence and even weed out a few!

Look how nice it came out! I’m so excited! Now, the new tackle….what should I make for dinner tonight??!!





I've found some items that might help you to reorganize your recipe collection!

I did this about a month or so ago as a Tackle. After finishing, I showed hubby with great pride only to have him burst my bubble and ask why I didn't just put everything on the computer. Ugh! Men!!! LOL

I still love looking at my new recipe box.

That's a great tackle. It's so easy for recipe cards to get out of control, especially when clipping from magazines!

Oh my! I need to tackle this myself. My recipes are all over the kitchen. They're all splattered with food too!

Hey I have been doing the same thing over here. I have been going through and cleaning out my recipes. Trying to type them up nice.

I have to straighten mine. Maybe that will be my next tackle.

I need to do the same thing. I like having small recipe cards, but I haven't added to my box in a long time. I also stopped putting the cards back where they go. Oops.
