We had a thread on this not too long ago; a lot of people use a 3-ring binder with tabs for different categories of recipes (that's what I do, too): http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...pes-40734.html

HTH.

I use a little fridge magnet to hold the recipe onto my stove's vent hood.
Works like a charm cuz I am a tall guy.

Haven't gotten around to organizing them quite yet...

I don't understand the "recipe holders" thing.

But, when it comes to keeping a printed out recipe clean while cooking ... I do essentially the same as AllenOK ... and it works great. If you're making two recipes - you can clip them back-to-back and just flip the clip over to go to the next recipe. Of course, if you're making more recipes - you have to shuffle pages.

I keep my recipes in a 3-ring binder and remove the pages as I need them. I put them into plastic page protectors, make the meal, then remove the pages and put them back into the binder.

Insert red-faced smiley with halo ... I have been known to drag my laptop into the kitchen and fret the whole while that I'll ruin it. This is a well-founded fear, as I have a spill history ... so far so good, thankfully!

That is basically what I do. I started doing this because I have so little counter space.

I have a clip on a metal stand. It's about 20 in high. so, I just clip the recipe in. It's tall enough that the recipe doesn't drag on the counter.

I forgot to mention that DH once bought me a wooden cookbook holder from shop class in the school where he once taught. It doesn't have a shield to keep the recipes clean, but I can find the pages I want easily

I use a binder too, but in a pinch, you can hook your recipe to a cabinet by putting a magnet on the metal hinge.
