Recipe Tip

I'm not the most organized with my recipes. I don't have them neatly organized in plastic sleeves in a 3-Ring Binder (I guess maybe I should!). I store them in a drawer in the kitchen and I just pull out the recipe I need when I need it.

Because of this lack of organization, when I cook, my recipe sits on the counter and inevitably gets splashed with water, oil, whatever it is I'm cooking with. And it often gets buried under a mountain of vegetable cuttings.

When my sister was in town a couple of weeks ago, we did a lot of cooking. I came up with a great way to preserve my recipe and keep it handy.

I just clipped it to the oven hood using a magnetic "chip clip." It doesn't get dirty and it's quickly visible when I need to refer back to it. I know, I know, this isn't going to change your life, but it might make cooking a little easier ;)

By the way, I was making this yummy potato soup recipe and it was delicious! I was even able to freeze about half of it which I am trying to do more of. I am slowly building a stockpile of freezer meals for those nights when I just don't feel like cooking.
