The beginning of a new year prompts a lot of organization and decluttering within homes. I recently organized my kitchen in hopes of getting inspired to try new recipes this year. So, I started going through my recipe box and quickly realized I had a lot of recipes torn out of magazines, scribbled on scrap pieces of paper, and some were given to me. To be honest, it was a total mess. Who else has a recipe box that looks like mine?
I’m here today to help so that you’re not left trying to figure out the best way to organize your recipes alone. These recipe cards, available as a free download, will have you organizing your recipes in no time. By using these cards, it not only allows you to organize your recipes by type but also creates a cohesive look within your box.
Here’s exactly what you’ll need to start getting organized with your recipes:
Each card includes a space for the name of the recipe, cook time, the temperature for the oven, ingredients, instructions, number of servings, and where the recipe is from. With the added touch of watercolor florals, this isn’t your average recipe card. Don’t forget to print a few extra and place them in the back of your recipe box along with a pen. By doing this you’ll never leave yourself scrambling to find an extra one or having to print more last minute.
Maybe you’re in need of a recipe box as well. By downloading the free recipe label, you can attach the label to a blank recipe box on the front or top. These match the recipe cards which makes it so much fun! Plus, it’s pretty to display on your kitchen counter. You can find the recipe box used in this post at Hobby Lobby or this wooden one on Amazon.
These recipe cards also make a great gift! Print as many as you desire and tie them together with twine and pair with a recipe box. These are great as housewarming gifts, wedding gifts, and to give to a friend or family member that designates themselves as the chef of the family.
