Wow, I can't believe it's already Wednesday. I really thought I had another day left to do this! Well, here is my WFMW tip of the day.
I have a lot of recipes. More than I can really keep track of most days. So what I have started to do is to organize them on my computer (and soon, into a binder or three). I have organized my files to be very similar to a cookbook. I have a folder for Appetizers, Yeast Breads, Quick Breads, Main Dishes, Sweet Treats, and so on. Within each of those folders, I also have sub-folders. For instance, Sweet Treats has sub-sections for Cakes, Pies, Cookies, and so on. Within each of those sub-folders, I also have a folder for New Recipes To Try. When I have tried that recipe, I decide whether I like it or not, and then either delete it, or transfer it to the appropriate folder. It sounds like a lot of extra steps, but it really helps me to remember what I have and haven't tried, and what worked for us and what didn't. For instance, I recently made a dish that, while I thought it was alright, it wasn't something I wanted to make again. I deleted the dish, and now I don't have to try to remember whether I made it. I also made a cake recently that my husband (who hates cake) absolutely loves. I will definitely keep that one, so I will transfer it to the cake folder.
