A few weeks ago, as I was digging through my recipe cabinet looking for a specific one, I realized that I need a better system. We try out lots of recipes from about ten different (fabulous) books, and then I can't remember which book which recipe came from. I dislike recipe cards and boxes, so Chris suggested writing down all of the ones we really like and putting them in a binder, but I hated to have to double my work since the recipes are already in print...until I found the most adorable paper ever!

If you are ever looking for cute personalized stationary, check out The Stationery Studio. They have a ton of items and patterns to choose from, lined or unlined, with or without envelopes, and you can pretty much personalize it however you want. It did take about ten days to get here after I ordered it, but there was a winter storm across the state, which affected its arrival time, I'm sure. When I opened the shipping box, there it was. I really had no idea how it would be presented, and was a bit worried that it might be just loose sheets. They are definitely not full-sized sheets of paper, and are bound at the top with glue. So, what I got for my efforts was a notepad of 300 sheets of perfectly personalized, lined paper. As you can imagine, I was thrilled to be able to get started on this new project. So while the hubs watched the All-Star pre-game festivities and competitions, I spent last night sorting through the mess that I called my recipe binder (threw away about 30 random scraps of paper), and began transferring delicious recipes to my new kitchen sheets! The Sprite slam-dunk contest did distract me a bit though. ;-)
