Now that the digital age is upon us (cue: Conan O’Brien’s “In the year two-thousaaaaaand...” anyone?) I have moved my recipe organization away from a giant binder and little scraps of magazine cut-outs to an almost all-digital collection. I save them in Google Docs, which is now called Google Drive.
When I find an online recipe that I want to save, I click on the “Printer friendly” link, since it usually brings up the recipe in a nice, neat new page without all the extraneous sidebars and stuff that websites have. Then I “Select All,” copy it, and paste it into a new Google Drive document.
One of the things that I like about using Google Drive is that I can search for an ingredient or other key word and it will pull up any recipes that contain that word, not just those with that word in the title. The other thing I like about it is that I can pull the recipe up on my iPad, set it up on my kitchen counter and read it as I cook. It also makes it easy to share recipes with my husband as we both can contribute and search our “recipes” folder.
Do not put your iPad this close to the stove. I'm not actually cooking anything here.
Have you switched to digital recipes? How do you organize them?
