I keep all of my recipes typed in Word, on my computer's HDD. They are organized into subfolders by type (desserts, entrees, breakfast, sandwiches, etc.). I can run searches by title or a word in the document. Those recipes that I use often, I have a hard copy in a folder in the kitchen that I put up onto a clip mounted onto a cabinet door.

I need to get my recipes backed up. Before I can do that, I need to find out why my CD-RW won't actually burn a disk. It's a software glitch, I'm sure. Last time I buy a cheap burner, that's for sure.....

Boy of boy, do I ever feel better. I thought I was one out of a handful of people that are scattered all over with books, clippings, cards, etc. I too spend more time looking for things than I do cooking! T'was I that asked about a software programme. Some very nice people answered me, and I printed the answers out - have I used the advice yet? For shame on me! I've just turned 70 so the very idea of gradually getting organized seems rather remote. I'll keep trying though. Happy New Year to all.

Some are on my computer, but most is on paper, hand written. I'd like to type them up and print them off, then place in a binder as my own personal cookbook of favorites. Problem is, the ink is so expensive!

What I do for favorite recipes: keep a piece of paper in the front of my recipe box of the name of the recipes and the book with the page number

Print them out small, so they fit in my planner - then I always have ideas & ingredients to hand when I go to the grocery store on the way home from college :)
