Hobby #3: Dinner Dates

January 14, 2010

It’s time to cook it up with the family, with a date, with… all the people you love to be with. I’m sure you have some great recipes you would like to organize for just such events. But, ugh. Organize…

Maybe it’s not the most fun word in the English dictionary, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it fun. Make organizing your recipes a fun hobby by putting them in a book or on recipe cards. Plus, you get to decorate your recipes just the way you want. Take a look at these fun ideas:

Compile  your recipes in the book that’s perfect for recipes: the wire-bound book. You can include photos, recipes, and fun stories in this book that lays flat to make your cooking that much better. Take a look at Family Favorites designed by Sharon Asher (Template ID: 19600) for fun design ideas.

The playing cards make great recipe cards for your own recipe box or to give away as a present. Recipes designed by Sara Boster (Template ID: 6592) is a great example of how you can design these cards for any recipe.

Don’t forget the swatch book. It’s perfect for recipes on the go. Maybe you need to take a bunch of recipes to grandma’s house for thanksgiving. Or maybe your daughter would like to take something small and tote-able with her to college. Holiday Recipes designed by Michelle Wolfley (Template ID: 20591) doesn’t have to be used just for the holidays, but can be changed to fit your personal style. Take a look.
