The first ingredient for a good meal is a great recipe. A recipe journal filled with all your delicious recipes is not that different from keeping a regular journal. This is if you've still got any recipes! Our shiny little touch screen devices have replaced nearly everything from our address booksto our calendars! It kind of saddens us that when we do swap recipes these days that it is probably over email.
We electronically send little pieces of our personal history only to be deleted once the cake has been made and the roast has been eaten, replacing our handwriting with hollow uniformity of our chosen fonts.
The ritual of keeping a recipe journal is almost rooted in the same impulse that makes us keep shelves of books we've already read and taking photos of every holiday: we like to remind and reassure ourselves of that we already know. So get started with your own little food archive!
