Not too long ago I mentioned that I was going to 'over haul' my {ever growing} Recipe Collection.  So, I have finally had 'some down time' {also known as the flu} to do something, well, simple.  I really wanted to use up my paper scraps {another growing collection}, as well as, create a book where the recipes DID NOT have to be removed from the book in order to see them {eventually I would like to have a picture of all of the prepared food mounted with the matching day}.
New Recipe Collection

Now, although this collection is not as nearly detailed as the previous, I think it will serve it's purpose better this way.  My sister had come across these transparent pages, on sale, at she snatched them up for me. I happened across this 12x12 album a while ago {I think it was at Winners, as well}, I liked the look, bought it, and have NEVER scrapped a 12x12 page since. All of the recipes have been typed out {I LOVE typing}, printed on 3x5 recipe cards and then mounted on random 'leftover' scraps {I have mounted a recipe on each side of the paper to cut down on overall bulk}. 
{another look}
I like that I can just open the book up, read the recipe, and wipe off the pages...should there be any spattering...and there will be.
I need to do something to the cover...hmm.
Anyway, nothing too exciting, but definitely useful for a girl who LOVES to cook!

  1. Great idea Jazz & very practical. I think that cover has potential & you are just the girl to tackle it. hugs Mom

  2. What a wonderful idea. I like the part that you can just wipe it off!

  3. WOW, what a neat idea!!! This has me rethinking my ideas for my sister's cookbook I'm making for her wedding :)

  4. I love this idea. I have been wanting to do a recipe album too since my recipe box is such a jumbled mess and there are recipes in there that I have never tried and probably never will! thanks for the inspiration!
