Recipe Filing System

I have a large collection of cooking magazines and books. To help locate a recipe quickly, I rely on a simple system. Instead of writing down the entire recipe and filing it, I grab a recipe card and jot down the name of the dish, which magazine or book it is in and the appropriate page number. I separate the cards by category and file them alphabetically in a box so I can find what I need easily. —Kelly DeGrant-Vissers, De Pere, Wisconsin
