Free Printable: Recipe Card – What’s cookin’, good lookin’?

5 Nov


One of my New Year’s resolutions this year was to try a new recipe each week. My husband and I were in a dinner rut, eating the same few meals each week. I’m happy to report that I have been pretty good at keeping this resolution and have incorporated many wonderful dishes into our weekly meal rotation.

But now I’m running into a bit of a problem. I have dozens of new recipes and they are all saved in various places: Pinterest, Google Docs, Evernote, printed and stuffed in my cupboard. Every time I go to make a recipe I have to dig for it. Now I know I could just pin everything to a board but this presents a few issues: cooking is messy and I have gotten food on my iPad on more than one occasion, if the web page expires, I’m out of a recipe (this happened to me before and I was devastated), and I kinda miss hard copy recipe cards that are allowed to get a little grimy. Plus they go in cute little boxes.

With my husband’s encouragement (he’s tired of me ranting when I can’t find a recipe), I have decided to come up with a recipe saving system. Basically I’m going to copy each recipe down on a cute recipe card and then keep them in a decorative box. Oldschool I know, but what keeps this practice current is I will also save each card digitally.

Is your recipe saving system a mishmash mess like mine? Then download these cute recipe cards and get to work organizing your favorite meals. I have designed four different color schemes. For easy printing, the 8.5 in x 11 in paper consists of two 4 in x 6 in recipe cards. For best results, print on heavy cardstock paper.


How do you save recipes? Do you still have recipe cards from relatives you will never part with?



Decorate your Desktop: You’re Better than you Think

Who’s the most critical person I know? I’ll give you a hint, her name starts with the letter A. Yup, you guessed correctly – it’s me. Like everyone, my inner critic tends to be the biggest naysayer I know. It’s mouthy, impatient and hard to please. Which is maddening when you’re trying new things – particularly creative endeavors which often require a bit of trial and error.

So in hopes of dampening the voice of my inner critic. Because let’s be fair, to silence it wouldn’t be sensible. The inner voice does serve a purpose – it’s often what pushes us to do our very best. I have decided to create confidence boosting desktop wallpaper.

So if you need a little encouragement, feel free to download it here.
