Sounds like you’re doing a much better job of curating than I am!
Sounds good but wait, there's more. In that "Recipes" folder are seventeen category folders-meats, poultry, desserts, breads, etc.
THEN, in each of those seventeen folders is a 'Cookbook' folder that holds all my tried and true recipes from that category we like and will make again.
THEN, in each of those seventeen folders are dozens, if not hundreds, of saved recipes that I saved and hoped to try some day. Some of those are decades old and probably haven't been looked at in ten years or more.
I don't have magazines with recipes in them because I don't buy magazines. If I copy recipes from TV shows, I copy them into my computer and file them into that black hole that holds all those other recipes I thought looked good.
Given that I'm a bit CDO, this eats at me all the time but I've learned to deal with it.
So, without going into which of us is less organized, let's just say we could do better.
