Pantry Recipe Box

Where do you keep your recipes? I have a drawer which I only put my recipes in. Recently though, I saw a pantry recipe box on the Handpicked Collection Website and I've been thinking about it ever since. It's a good idea, isn't it? It’s also a great idea for a gift for loved ones/friends who love collecting recipes.

The Handpicked Collection's Recipe Box doesn't come with a lock and key but it provides a safe home to keep your recipes together. You'll find lots of unique gift ideas on their site.

With a recipe box, you can put different categories onto tabbed dividers and you can file clipped recipes but it is neater if you write them onto recipe cards. As with the accordion file, you'll have to sort through recipes in a category to find one but it’s worth it if you don’t misplace all those important treasures.

If you're a recipe junkie, what is your method of keeping them together?

Do you organize them by seasons or holidays? Or do you order them by types of recipes, such as breads, soups and desserts? I collect my recipes by type. One of my friends told me she uses a photo album to put her recipes together. That sounds a good way too.
I don't know if she has tried a recipe box before but I think, the Pantry Recipe Box would be a great gift for her next Christmas. Hmmm.. I love this idea:))
If you prefer to get gifts early, before the season starts and for stress free holiday shopping, you might want to take a look at the Handpicked Collection's website.'

Happy Sunday Everyone!

  1. Hello Yonca! Hmmn.. my recipes are everywhere Lol! But mostly are inserted between the pages of my recipe books. Very disorganized actually! Lol!

    I hope you're doin' fine now my friend! Be well! God bless!

  2. What a pretty recipe box. My recipes aren't really organized, but are written in a recipe book I have, plus cut from magazines and stuffed in there too. I like the idea of setting them up seasonally, though, and might give that a try.

  3. I love my recipe box. I only keep my most treasured and favorite recipes in it!

  4. I used to have a recipe box, but now I keep my recipe in my computer.

  5. I wish my recipes were that organized. I have several recipe books with the ones cut from magazines or handwritten stuffed in the books.

  6. I am not that organized. I have recipe books on a book shelf, but that I have recipes cut out from magazines tucked beside the books. Whenever, I look at those recipes, I tell myself I must get organized. I like your idea.

  7. Funny, I had a similar box when I was a kid, another in my twenties, and that was it. I'm not much of a cook, but I do print or photocopy recipes and keep them in a binder (each in a sheet protector).

    The box would be pretty in anyone's kitchen.


I' m loving to read your comments:)
