Recipes, Organized

Someday there may come a time
when I am away on a gal's weekend
or for whatever reason,
can't provide meals for my boys.
I thought it would be a good idea
to document all of our favorite recipes
so that I know they will not be wasting away
while I'm absent from the kitchen.

Our Family Recipe Book
When Lil' Guy's ready to leave the nest,
I can make a copy for him too!

There is a separate section for gluten-free recipes.

Using different colors for the various categories of
gluten-free, main dishes, baking, and veggies
makes it easier to find just what you're looking for.

Each source is listed for those recipes 
that are not original.

There's even a section for gifts-in-a-jar.

Most recipes have limited ingredients,
as we enjoy simple, clean eating.

A few precious family heirlooms have been saved
with original hand-written recipes
from past generations.

A pocket holds recipes found in magazines
just for holiday baking.

Along with the menu-by-the-month,
the boys should be well on their way
to gastronomic independence!
The binder sits next to the household notebook
in the kitchen where it is easily accessible.
Buon appetito!
