Better Recipe Organizer…

I found a better way to store all my recipes. It’s free and easy to use! I got the idea after reading http://food.thefuntimesguide.com/2009/10/recipe_organizer_software.php. It’s so easy to add my recipes, I can make folders and put copies of all the recipes in as many folders as I want. I can add the links and pictures from my blog posts. The best part I can easily read and share the recipes on my laptop at home or on my phone.

  1. I love how you took one main meal and repurposed it into two others! That’s something I’ve really been working on for the last several months. And those enchiladas sound fantastic.

  2. Wow you had quite a few tips in this post! I love the soup recipes and have been eating soup daily for a few weeks now (cold weather here in Pittsburgh) and I’m always excited about a new recipe. Also love your organization tips. Thanks! (found you SITS Sharefest)

Would love to read your thoughts
