1. didn't take up space on my counter while I was using it
2. was splash-proof in case I spilled ingredients on it
3. I could look at quickly and easily and not have to turn any pages to read the recipe and ingredients
4. I could easily add more recipes to and re-organize and add categories when I wanted to
Step 1: Supplies
-a 3 ring binder
-plastic sheet protectors
-a magnetic chip clip
-either markers/pens/pencils or a computer and printer
-a metal fume hood over your stove that magnets will stick to
-organizer divider tabs for 3 ring binders
Step 2: Fill Your Book Up
I also have recipes in here that I found in old magazines. Instead of taking the time to write the recipe out, I just tore the page out of the magazine and added it to my book.
