Here it is, the genius idea that I am sure is going to revolutionize my life: take all those handwritten recipes, pages ripped out of Gourmet and printed internet recipes that are crammed into the kitchen drawer and paste them into a leather journal. Voila! Instant cookbook.
I know, you're thinking I must be some kind of rocket scientist. But honestly, this is the first time the idea has occurred to me. It's bizarre since I have been both an avid journal keeper and recipe tearer-outer for at least a decade. I'm going to Flax to buy a good journal after work today.
The recipe journal will be my spring cleaning project for the weekend. This and unpacking a big box of antique linens into drawers so I can actually use them now and then. Are you spring cleaning this weekend?
