I use a 3 ring binder too, but not properly.
For whatever reason, Im too lazy to grand punch the holes so I just stuff the recipes in there like a folder, then curse every time I need a recipe and they all fall out or I can't find it. Always saying " This winter Im going to organize the recipes so it never happens again!!" and as each spring comes around, I just have a thicker, more unorganized folder/ Binder
. Some recipes are hand written by me, some are computer print outs, some clipped from the paper or magazined, some even hand written by my mother , father , or grand father. And thats why I kinda like having the folder/ binder, is for the ones that are hand written by my parents/ grandmothers. Kinda cool to see the recipe in their writing. Some of the recipes even have food stains on them, or a burned corner from being too close to the burner . Their physical appearance tells a stpry all by themselves.
Another winter project ( which I never get to) is to make a family cook book out of them, with pictures , family stories about each recipe, and save it for when my kids get married and give them each a copy.
