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

11 posts in this topic

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.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
