Do any of you do this? Or any recipe organizing suggestions?

Recommended Posts

I started a word document of all of the recipes I want to try from this site or others.

Do you have any online sites/programs that are easy to use to keep recipes together?

Hoggs you are way too efficient for me grin I will copy and paste them in to a folder called recipes. Now what I really need to do is take all the recipes that I have cut out of the paper that are in a three ring binder and scan those into a computer. Some day when I get that elusive Round-to-it wink

I downloaded a free program called Recipes 3000. It's real good and keeps them very organized. I also did the word docs and had a Recipe folder and then broke that down into different types.

The good ones, I download into my Brain. The rest of them are either on a USB drive (even the small ones hold a ton) or I keep them in a three-ring.

There is one out there that I have seen a few use, it's called Living Cookbook 2009, seems pretty good, you can try it for 30 days, it will also bust nutritional info for you too. If you find a good recipe on the web, simply copy and paste it and your done, it's in the system.

Hoggs222, I print the recipes that appeal to me and put them into a 3 ring binder. Then I can grocery shop and take recipe and the goods out into the perm while Icefishing, in between bites I can cook/feast!! I have several recipes for dishes that I've grown up with and I'm trying to perfect them, as well as a couple of websites that have some REALLY GREAT looking dishes. I'd be happy to share the websites with you if you're interested. The websites offer the recipe file option. Phred52

Cool thing about the recipe program I use, is you can pick your recipes and it will print out the crocery list for ya.

I used to just stuff clipped out and/or printed recipes in one of my outdoor cookbooks until I realized that I was wrecking the binding. What I did was buy four folders with pockets and label them 'Pheasant', 'Deer', 'Fish', and 'Misc'. The recipes that I've tried and like go in the left side to make them easier to find, the right side contains the rest of the recipes. It has really helped, now I can just goto the folder of the meat I'm preparing to cook, and most of my favorates are close to the top. I also like to make comments on each recipe like 'good', 'Julie likes', 'cut down on salt'. The lousy recipes get tossed out.

I put together a cookbook in Word and gave it out for Christmas gifts one year. Woking on Volume two.

Also google Allrecipes. It is now my go to site for new recipes. All the recipes are reviewed by Common Joes who try them and say what they like or don't like. Also has a recipe box to save the ones you find interesting.

    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
    • Try going over to this thread. Rock & Edibles-Agates-Fossils-Artifacts-Mushrooms-Ginseng-Gems-etc. There is some discussion taking place under Morels' 2018 already.
    • Guys and Gals, I have searched high and low and have found none at all this spring.  Anyone have an success.  I am guessing it is too dry.  Will they still pop?  Any advise? "Set the Hook", Flash  
    • Wow, my spots are way behind this year. Had hoped to find a bunch before this coming long weekend for a big family Walleye and Morel fry but have only found 5 small grays so far. Just not seeing the ground cover growing very much yet and have saw no other types of mushrooms which seem to grow first pop up yet. This is a very late year so far.
