“Ideas won’t keep: something must be done about them.”
I have granddaughters who are just learning to cook. Their first pick is the recipe with 25 ingredients and 17 steps. One is going to be a Chef when she grows up. Okay. Good. Time for a recipe box.
Each box is made from a CD box which is taller and squishier than most boxes. The dividers are made out of card stock, topped with a card stock tab and laminated. I made a master for the recipe cards using tiny scrap aprons. I copied the recipe cards onto card stock and cut them out. Almost anything looks better with a ribbon tied around it. Now, the budding Chefs can copy recipes onto their own recipe cards. Maybe if they copy 25 ingredient recipes enough times, they will develop a sharp eye for the recipes with 3 ingredients. Okay . . . five ingredients including a spice I have.
