LOVE LIST: A RECIPE BOX

Rifle Paper Co Recipe Box and Cards

I KNOW HOW silly and dated a recipe box may seem with the digital age but after careful inspection of my own kitchen habits I have realized how helpful necessary this is to my baking arsenal. Wanna know how I cook? I look up a recipe on my computer in my bedroom. I copy the recipe onto a notepad making markings and doodles I later struggle to decipher. I go back and forth 50 times between my sorry-excuse-for notes and my computer. Then once I’ve made what I’ve got to make, I toss the paper and the next time I want to make it, I go through the whole process all over. So ridic. Right? Why don’t I just keep the paper? I don’t know… where would I store it? And yes, I know that the iPad is supposed to have solved this issue but I don’t like touching my iPad with dirty cooking hands. And as an artist (yup, that’s my new word for unemployed) I have an appreciation for the tangible. The lost art of paper, you know? Besides I just like some things the plain old-fashion way. Recipe box, you’re on the top of my love list right now.

  1. I do the same! I hate the back and forth from a computer, and I really don’t like having my computer/phone/ipad etc out while I’m cooking. This is awesome, love love love!

  2. les – you must get the paprika app (www.paprikaapp.com). it’s the best digital receipe manager! you can copy paste from any website, create as many categories as you want, scale the recipes, and calendar meals to plan & shop. there is a version for the iPad, iPhone, and laptop, and they all sync together. #gamechanger
