DIY cookbook for families with food allergies
Here's how Amber's keeping track of the recipes that fit her family's dietary needs:
My family has a lot of food sensitivities, so I work really hard at trying to find as many varied (but not too strange) recipes that we can all enjoy. I have never been much of a cook so it's a struggle.
I found that doing online searches for recipes was much more efficient and cost effective than buying cookbooks, and since no cookbook would be tailored to our exact dietary needs I have begun to build my own. I emptied out a 3-ring binder, filled it with plastic sheet covers and whenever I find a recipe I want to try, I print it out. If it's successful I put it in the book.
I keep it within arms reach in the kitchen and when it gets dirty or wet I can just wipe off any page or make notes as a please. It's been the greatest cookbook ever!
Three-ring binders are good for so much. We keep take-out menus in binders, along with babysitting instructions, newspaper clippings...
What about you?
