I'm so excited to finally post something for Friday Farm Girls! (Note to Lori: Sorry this is a day late!)
And a note to everyone. I'm not really a farm girl; I live in the suburbs, across from a grocery store, movie theater, and strip mall. Not exactly farm country. But I do love the heart of a farm girl--cooking from scratch, scouring for new recipes, gardening, etc.
Today, I wanted to share my cookbook with you! This is actually the new, updated version of the original cookbook I created several years ago. The original expanded into two books, with recipes hanging out of the top. So, organizer-at-heart that I am, I purged outdated recipes, and ones I'll never use again (changes in health and nutrition).
I ended up with this beautiful binder, filled with my absolute favorite recipes. I still have work to do on it; for instance, I do have other cookbooks with recipes I use, and I need to get those into this binder. But most of my recipes are included here. I simply bought a set of tabs, sorted through my recipes, and then made tabs according to what types of recipes I had.
Some recipes are typed into pages on the computer, and some are just taped into my binder. I do love pictures, and have either scanned them in with the recipe, or taped the recipe/picture into the binder. I also used page protectors, which I wipe down as I spill things on them. (My signature cooking move is to let the pot boil over before I turn it down. I somehow manage to do that almost every time a pot is on the stove.)
No more searching for the right cookbook--it's all right here. And that makes me happy.
Back to life,
