I put them in virtual folders on my laptop so I don't have to print it out.

I do too, but...but...but... how do you follow a recipe while you're actually making it? I'm old fashioned enough to like to have the paper copy in front of me and write on it when I need to. Or let it get splattered on. lol

When I'm ready to make the recipe, that's when I print it. I make notes on the printed copy as I cook. If it turns out to be a keeper, I reformat it into my standard recipe format and print it out for the recipe book.

Oh, I print them out to cook from. I just have to remember what recipe it was and where I hid it on the computer.

What you need is some anal retentive guy to organize your files for you.

I like the paper copy, too.
Seems like when I try using my tablet or laptop it times out on me before I get the dish completed. Plus I have no room for either on my counter, so I am walking back and forth from prep area to kitchen table. The printed recipe I can hang up at eye level.

...and I use Arial 12 pt. so I can read it without my glasses. I'll have to go to 14 pt. soon or get stronger glasses.

This isn't so much a recipe as just discovering something new. If you haven't yet discovered veggie noodles, I highly recommend. I was standing in the checkout line at BB&B and the little veghetti spiralizer lured me in. That night I made zucchini noodles (or "zoodles") and had them with my home made Italian sauce and turkey meatballs. Next, it'll be lemon zoodles (fresh herbs, lemon, fresh garlic, white wine & a sprinkle of parm. with grilled shrimp and cherry tomatoes. There are only 3 small meatballs in that pic... I cut them in half.

I have this handy dandy little item I got at Key Bank when I worked there. They used to give them out as a favor to customers. It has a spring in it and a slot to hold a piece of paper. A child could hold it in the palm of their hand. It fits on the counter very nicely. I have never seen any thing like it since. ATK had something similar to it, only it had a ball that held the paper against the magnetic back. I treasure this little gizmo and those that know me know to never ask if they can use it. Not without supervision from me.

I'm all for "cute" veggies Janet. That's quite a gadget, and I LOVE your china! Welcome to DC by the way.
