Recipe Tips

Just a few cookbooks
I have many cookbooks (maybe too many) and the cutest little recipe book ever. I’ve had it forever and really should replace it but I have yet to find one I love as much. This is where I keep all the recipes I frequently use.

I also keep a 3 subject notebook along with the other books. It’s nothing fancy, just a $1.50 Family Dollar notebook.

The first notebook section I use for menu plans/ideas. So when I’m not really sure what to make, I go to that first section and see what looks good.

The second section I use for first time recipes. I write the recipe name, where I got it from, ingredients and directions I used, including tips. I’ll also note the dish results and things I need to change the next time I make that recipe. When I’m satisfied with the results I’ll write that recipe in my sweet cutesy recipe book.

The last section is where I write down recipes I’d like to try/look up. Kinda like a To Do list for cooking – have I told you I’m a list girl? One recipe that had been on that list was crock-pot lasagna… done. I also have chicken noodle soup on the list… haven’t done it yet.

So, does anyone have a good chicken noodle soup recipe?  Please leave me a comment to the link or send me an email at: moremilestones(at)yahoo

Don't forget to come back for Saturday Suggestions to link up your go-to recipe and thumbnail.

You're amazingly organized! I have a few cookbooks and a few disorganized handwritten recipes. Mostly I fly by the seat of my non-inspirational pants!

My mother did the notebook thing too. She wrote out all of her favorite recipes with changes she made.

No good chicken noodle soup from me, but I've been sick so if you want to send me some that would be great! ;)

@SIF, you may want to rethink that one. I have yet to make it.
