I read my notebooks just like I read the cookbooks. I have ups and downs when it comes to cooking, Shrek always knows when he's about to treated to things he's nevewr tasted...I drag out the books!

He's worried right now...I just bought ingredients and equipment to make Sushi...the rice cooker should be here Tuesday.

I had fun trolling the stores today looking for discount prices on knives and mini bowls...I also got some exercise pants for my trip through Rehab.

I love shopping! I'm glad you had fun.

I have OneNote on my computer. I see something, I highlight it and use the "Send to OneNote" feature on my IE toolbar. It sends it to OneNote WITH a link so I can trackback to the original location anywhere on the internet OR even to another computer program (such as a word doc on my computer) so I can revisit what I may have missed or want to look at later. Then in OneNote I have a Recipe Notebook divided into sections with recipes, notes and pictures.

I've also been keeping a steno book handy to the computer for those little tips and tricks you pick up just catching up with the latest posts. I also make a note of who gave me the idea.

I have some old recipes in notebooks, handwritten on lined paper. Those are mostly my canning recipes.

I have notes in my cookbooks.

Nowadays, it's on the computer and in a three ring binder. The three ring binder has the recipes printed from the computer. We usually only print them to use them. While cooking, they are on the fridge with a couple of magnets. Notes go on the printouts. I occasionally remember to update the digital version.

The digital versions are usually text files when I type them, as well as when copying and pasting. I "print" PDFs of recipes from the web. I have learned to always paste in the URL.

The recipes on the computer are all in a folder. I have a couple of subdirectories, but need to organize into more of them. The ring binder needs reorganizing too.
