Ok that stands for...works for me wednesday! Another blog carnival. I am having fun with these! This one is sponsored by Shannon at a blog called Rocks in My Dryer. The address is http://rocksinmydryer.typepad.com/shannon

Anyway, this is my first time ever doing this. But here is my tip, or what works for me!

I love recipes.I love to look at recipe magazines. I have a shelf on my kitchen that has my cookbooks, and it is being over run by magazines. I am constantly searching through all of them, looking for that one recipe that I want.

So I started buying 3x5 index cards, that are spiral bound, and whenever I get free time, I go through and copy ones that I want to keep. Then I am able to dump the magazines. It frees up space, and I have a quick cookbook!

This is a great tip! Just earlier this very night, Mr. Brownstone asked me to purge the magazines. To be honest, I got a little miffed at him, but he was right, and so are you! I will definitely be employing your idea this week.

Welcome - this is just my second week. It's fun, isn't it!

Love it! I use 3x5 cards for just about everything, but I've never put recipes on them--stands to reason: they're the same size as my recipe cards so would fit in the box perfectly! I guess you could also paste the picture from the magazine on the back! Great tip, thanks.

I do this, too. And if I really like the recipe after making it, I laminate the card.
My regular recipe box holds 4x6 cards. But I recently bought a vintage box that holds 3x5 cards. So what do I put on the little cards? Little recipes, LOL! That is...recipes with five ingredients or less (not including salt & pepper)!
