Recipe Door

How do you make recipes that you are trying from the internet? Do you print the entire page? Bring your laptop close by? Use my post-it-note system?

(And, yes, that is a Daring Baker recipe taped to my kitchen cupboard doors - but don't get too excited, it is last months' recipe, not this months!)

i put mine in a sheet protector (like this kind) and keep them in a 3-ring binder :)

I kinda mixed it up. Gotta keep it exciting in the kitchen you know? HAHA. Sometimes I'll print up a rough copy on my computer and put it in a plastic sleeve (so I don't get stains on the paper) or I'll bring my whole laptop to the kitchen. I am hoping to get a frig with computer/internet built in for xmas. (Only 1/2 kidding.) What will they think of next?

Usually I copy and paste onto a word document, then print it out. Of course, if I don't write down which site I got the recipe from, I forget and then worry about giving credit.

So my system is flawed, to say the least!!

I use the same method as Megan. I usually copy and paste the text into a Word document. This has been a concern of mine for a while since I post a lot of recipes. I am working on being able to attach a file in .pdf format so people can click and print the recipe out, rather than having to write it down somewhere. In the mean time, copy and paste it is!

Depends on lots of different things. Sometimes I take the laptop (then I cover with plastic wrap to protect the keyboard) but most times I do like Megan & Make Life Delicious.
If I keep it to do again I put it in a plastic protector and put it in a 3 ring binder.

I tried using my laptop once and it drove me bonkers. I usually print it out, put it on my counter and if it is a good recipe it goes into a binder.

I mix! Sometimes I do the recipe door (for the "biggies"), sometimes the laptop in the kitchen, most of the times I copy the recipe in a kind of shorthand on scraps of paper...

(Loosing and finding scraps in a rather un-organized fashion... my family is scrappy trained and will apport any scrap to me..)
