Recipe Book Section Headers

Posted by Brian T on Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Here's how I organized "Dad's Cookbook."  I was determined to give my kids all the recipes I used as they grew up.  Part 16 is where I put recipes that I can't decide to keep or toss, maybe they need some tweaking.  I will say that this organization has stood the test of time.  Whatever you get used to, I suppose.

1.0  Hors d'ouvres & Dips

2.0 Sauces, Spice Mixes & Marinades

3.0 Coatings & Batters

4.0 Beef & Bison

5.0 Birds & Eggs

6.0 Fish & Seafood

7.0 Pork & Lamb

8.0  Cheese

9.0 Potatoes, Pasta, Rice & Veggies

10.0 Salads & Salad Dressings

11.0 Soups

12.0 Pickles

13.0 Pastry & Desserts

14.0 Pizza & Fresh Pasta

15. Serious BBQ

16. Possibly Good Recipes

I typed the recipes to fill the pages, just a decimal listing, not alphabetical.  For example, 2.21 Alfredo Cheese Sauce, 2.22 Mango Salsa, 2.23 Pizza Sauce.  Of course some things get multiple listings,   My home-made pizza sauce turns up again as 14.2.

Looks like someone is going to love you for fixing up those old recipes so they will remain in the family.
Good job, Paul

I did this for my kids when they left for university. I was determined to break the pattern where "Mom's recipes died with her". Well, Dad's recipes won't die with him/me. I did an inventory of the recipes and sent each kid off with the recipe book and a box of every herb/spice/oil/condiment needed to make everything. In that day and time, about $150.00.
They buy only the fresh stuff = done deal.

At the same time, I can't believe how hard it is to convince others to do likewise.
