that store thing sounds great and very handy!! also saves writing up lists and then changing your mind and guessing at a different recipes ingredients.

I love to draw and color and work with colors but I love the computer. I guess I'm antiquated using a notebook for my recipes that I love. The computer still stores all my recipes, but my notebook is personal.

This allows me to return to where I copied the original recipe and also research any other recipies or interesting things that might be on that website. I have a laptop, so I can take it to the kitchen if need be.
i love onenote because i can highlight anything on the web and just click send to onenote. it opens a new page, deposits whatever i sent with the url automatically added. i don't have to do anything but highlight, send and it is all waiting for me when i need it. i can click the url and go and reexamine the site. this is great for my daughter and i when we do research (hers is for college, mine is for whatever LOL). i can also add hand drawings (in colors and i can chose the thickeness and color of writing) or notes.

No, I need the physical use of my hands and my very expensive pencils. :) I love to write and own several handmade paper notebooks. As creating presentations on my computer has been my job for so many years, the outlet of coloring (like I was 5) is so cathartic for me, it is a release, whereas doing it on my computer is just "work" for me.

Smile Recipe box

I keep all my recipes in a recipe box near my cookbook collection.

I write down on a recipe card any recipes that I come across that look interesting to me. The untried recipes go into my recipe box. I have some untried recipes that have been in the box for ages.

After I make it the first time I tweak the recipe to suit my taste. Recipes that are beyond tinkering I throw away.

I'm always tweaking recipes to improve them.

Some recipes I type into an e-mail letter that I send to myself. I save these recipes in a "recipe" folder in my e-mail section on my PC. These are usually recipes that friends have asked for in an e-mail to me. My chicken enchiladas recipe received over 50 requests.

i use to have a card file then on some i like the pic of them so i then typed them all up and tranferred all of them to a 3 " ring binder then i needed another one. So when school was starting and store had their back to school sale i purchased many smaller binders and put recipes in catagories, appetizer & beverage, meats, casseroles & dairy , breads & pastas , cakes & pies, Cookies & candies, salads & sauces Veggies & miscell etc. works out great. Then i have a wicker basket that i throw in new recipe to try. and if its ok it get put in the notebook.

I did the computer first before tranferring cards to binders and computer crashed once and lost all, i was glad i had them still on hard copy. so I don't trust storing them them

I use software for my ingredient lists, notes and nutritional information. When I'm done tinkering and I can consider it 'done' I usually post it on my blog. When I use it, I usually print it from my blog because that's easier than getting the kids off of MY COMPUTER!!!!!
