I get Southern Living only. Back a number of years ago I got Taste of Home and Taste of Home Quick magazines. As each issue came, I checked off recipes I thought the family would enjoy and made a computer master list of the ones I checked off, catagorizing them by food types, i.e. appetizers, soups, breads, main meals, desserts, cookies, etc.
I just go to my master list, find out the month and year of the magazine where the recipe I want is found. I have the books sorted by months and rubber banded together by month. It has really saved me having to search through piles of magazines to find what I want.
I can't tell you how many hundreds of times I've referred to that printout. Once I see the month and year, then able to find the recipes I need. A real life saver.
Yeah, I know, I have too much time on my hands!! Actually, I did this when I was still working full time. Recipes are like jewelry to me, never enough!
