Guilty of using DC as a filing cabinet...

Okay, I'm guilty of using DC as a filing cabinet for recipe links. I will post a link so that when I get around to making the recipe, I can find it easily. I did that with the cherry sauce link last week, the rhubarb ice cream link before that...anyone else guilty of using DC as a filing cabinet for recipe links?

I don't.

I decided some time ago not to rely on a link's still working sometime in the future when I want a certain recipe. When I see a recipe I'm interested in, I copy it to my computer and file it in my recipes folder.

i guess i've done that in a way, but not from first intentions.

i've posted recipes here that later in i wanted to make again but could not find my hard copy or notes, so remembering that i posted it here i searched and found what i needed.

so it was more of a backup cabinet to me.

+1

I do that too! I recently was searching for a recipe and couldn't find it in my files so remembering I posted it here, I did a search, found it, copy/paste to word doc, print and I was back in business!

That's more or less what I meant, I print the recipe to a pdf, put it in my recipes folder on my computer, but I also post the link here, sometimes it is faster to find the link than remember the name of the file--sometimes it is the recipe name, sometimes I change it.

CWS, Buonasera.

Blogging on a Forum is something quite new for me ... and thus, not intentionally because I prefer Paper Notebooks, and all that is here, is written too ... I like to write and I enjoy the discussion ...

So with this in mind, I have never thought of D.C. being a File ... Just a Forum with real people, positive and negative on the other side of their Avatars ...

Interesting question CWS ... Thanks for posting ...

Ciao, Have nice wkend.
Margi.

Because I have so much paper in my life (work, charitable work, personal), I am trying to get rid of paper. I have no children, so can't imagine the poor soul who would have to go through all the paper I have. Hence, I have been working at getting rid of paper (newspaper clips, magazines, etc.) and scan as much as I can, put on memory sticks and hope the sticks can still be read as technology changes.

Not guilty!

I use my kitchen wall as a filing cabinet for receipes I use often. They are stuck up all over it.

No ma'am, I handwrite all the good recipes I find in my black book with modifications. Been working on it since 2006, and only the best ones make it in there.

If there's a recipe I want to make, I keep a tab open in my browser until I get to it as a constant reminder.

That would drive me crazy! Other than the utensil container, I don't keep any thing on my counter tops--toaster comes out, is used, gets put away. I also don't use the fridge as a bulletin board, nothing on the walls (don't really have a lot of wall space...).
