My Recipe Binder

I was inspired when watching THIS video, to make a recipe binder. I already had one....but the binder clips were only an inch or so...and I needed bigger ones to contain all my recipes (I am still working on this I seem to have recipes everywhere!). I used some of the "innards" of the other binder because I found them to be quite pretty!

I also have some recipes on cards in a recipe box...but this binder is perfect for ones I have printed out, written down or found in magazines! :)

How do you organize your recipes?



  1. I need, need to organize my recipes. They're just stuffed here and there. I have a binder that a friend gave me a few years ago, just sitting on my cookbook shelf. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I use a binder also. I must admit that I have been stuffing recipes to try into the front pocket of the binder. :( It is on my list to get my binder organized.

    Have a great day!

  3. Thank you for this practical post! What a wonderful mother you must have - you've been taught and learned so many useful and artistic ways to organize and manage your home and family.
    Your recipe binder idea is exactly what I've needed for all the recipes I've collected over the years. This is a project that will be written down on my to-do list for our upcoming long winter.


  4. Your binder is very pretty. I need to do something like this too. My grown daughter is trying to learn to cook more and this would make a nice gift for her. I bought a plain journal type book, many years ago, and started writing down my fav. recipes in them. It worked very well until the book started getting more and more recipes. There is no organization whatsoever and it takes a little time to 'find' the recipe I'm looking for. As I am printing more and more recipes from the computer, your binder looks like the perfect solution!

  5. What a blessing you are to your family.very organized loving mama you are.i do love when you post recipes. Blessings

  6. Now there's one area where I definitely need organization. Mine are all in a drawer....not very user friendly when I go looking for a recipe! Now if I can just find the time to sit down and do one of these! That's not as easy! :)

    Have a great day, Katy!

  7. I love it!! If you could see all of my loose recipes....stuck in a box, drawer and notebook!! Tell us there an area of your home that isn't organized?!?! You're an inspiration! ;)

  8. Katydid! Girl I am so happy to have found this post today! You truly inspire me with your journaling, and this recipe binder is beautiful! I have several recipes,... floating in my drawer that need to be put KEPT... neatly in something and your binder idea is perfect! I think I may even photocopy some of my special recipes in my angelmother's handwriting to keep in a binder like yours. Thank you for inspiring me once again dear friend! And I agree with the others.. you are one organized chicky! Please share what books you've read etc... sometime on organizing and homemaking. I would love to know if you have read anything special to you? Holykisses and may God continue to bless you and your family. Lea

  9. I have a binder, with some recipes in it, but its so plain and not at all inspiring!!!!!, I must make it look pretty and maybe I will use it more!!! I'm in abit of a rut with my meals, so need to add some new recipes, I think I need to read back on your blog and find some new recipes!!
    You really are an inspiration, thank you
    Love to all

  10. Beautiful! I have had a recipe binder for years and it falling apart! It's time to redo it. Should be a fun project!!


I am always so grateful to read your comments! I thank you for the time you took to visit and share your thoughts with me. :o)
May you enter as a stranger and leave as a friend!
Warmly, Katy
