I want to present a topic that is a big one for those who love recipes? How to organize recipes in the digital age. To be honest I am an old fashioned girl, I love old handwritten recipe cards. They are more personal and when I pass them down to my children,each will have something from me to remember me by. I also like to have a written copy because websites come and go. The danger of online bookmarking is you might have a specific recipe bookmark today, but if the website is gone, so is your recipe. It is a time consuming process, so it might be one of those things you use for your time tested, family recipes.
Evernote/OneNote/ softwareAnother method is using microsoft’s one note or the free evernote. These programs you create computer notebooks that help you organize web pages, recipes. Here is an article I found on how another blogger uses these programs to help her organize her recipes.

GmailUsing gmail is another way to organize your recipes.Let me say if you are going to use gmail, you need to set up a gmail address specifically for recipes only. Most recipes you find online have an email button. Simply email your recipe to that address, when you get the recipe set a specific tags for that recipe, for instance you get a recipe for chicken enchilada’s you can make a tag for chicken, and for mexican. When you are click on your tags for chicken or Mexican, your enchilada recipe will be right there!
