At a recent birthday party we were talking about recipes and how we save them. Some people write them out, some photo copy magazines and some people save files from recipe sites online. And we have all bought countless recipe books. I buy recipe books to decorate my shelves! 😉 I have also been known to take a photo of a recipe and at the supermarket look at my photo to read the ingredients to buy.
Swapping family recipes is an age old tradition that I am sure has become lost with many current lifestyles and technology. We get too busy to write or type out a recipe to share. Even my mum ‘googles’ recipes, and prints them out!
I have created some recipe cards using a 6 x 4 project and then I print my own photos. I am able to save the recipe for myself, or give it away as a gift.
Taking photos of food has become the norm. (All you have to do is check a few p2P pages to see that!!) If you have photos, you are halfway there in making a recipe card.
If you are already taking photos of the food, especially if it is your recipe, why not create a quick recipe card. Even if you don’t keep it for yourself, add it to a Birthday or Christmas card and post to a friend.
Post a recipe card or two to our Facebook page to start your recipe exchange!
