Confession: I am a recipe hoarder

by - Saturday, June 09, 2012


I am in the process of getting organized for summer and, as a part of this giant undertaking, I have been trying to make meal planning a little bit easier for myself. I am not really all that control-freaky about it now, but I would like to be a bit more organized with my sources of inspiration (cookbooks, websites, emails from friends' recipe exchanges...)

Today I sorted through an old email folder labeled "recipes" that contained a ridiculously huge number of recipes that I've never attempted. Big deal, right? Well, some of the emails were dated all the way back to 2007. Either those recipes didn't sound good enough to get my attention over the course of FIVE YEARS (!) or I am just too scattered to remember to look in that folder in the first place.

So, for my own sanity (and so that you can benefit from my hoarding too!), I have pinned as many of those as I could find online to my Pinterest "Food" folder, here. I am still a recipe hoarder, but at least I have more of them in one place!

(PS- I also have many Get Natured recipes, with photos, pinned here).

  1. I am so glad to hear I am not the only one. I have computer files, emails, storage bins...FULL of recipes...there aren't enough days in the year to make all of them...but I like your idea about pinning them. Pinterest is the ultimate recipe organizer. I LOVE it for that..guess I better get busy...lots of pinning to do!

  2. Good plan! (I do the same recipe saving and never using, by the way.) I've been meaning to try your vegan naan for a long time!
