If I bring a laptop or iPad into the kitchen with me in hopes of working from it instead of a cookbook or printout I can just about guarantee that the device will end up with a broken screen or melted backing. As a result of my amazing ability to destroy things, I’ve come to rely on printouts versus digital versions of the recipes I try out in my kitchen.
I didn’t want all of the recipes I was printing out to go to waste, so I started converting them into recipe cards and storing them in a little recipe card box when I was finished making them.
After years of collecting others’ recipes on these cards, I figured it was about time to fill the box with my own recipes. I began taking photos of the meals and snacks I was making for Kevin and I, creating recipe cards for them and sharing them over on my recipe card page. So far I’ve created and shared over 8 original recipes that have not been posted to the blog.
Each new recipe comes with a printable PDF and an image that you can download and save to your computer (if you’re one of those iPad cooking folk). There’s a yummy roasted kale and sweet potato recipe card, one for creamy shrimp soup, and a tasty vegan chipotle chili to name a few.
You can access the page by selecting “Recipe Cards” from the Recipe section on the top navigation bar of the blog.
New recipes are posted every Tuesday and shared on Facebook so stay on the lookout!
This week’s recipe is a paleo spaghetti recipe with bison, bacon and chunky vegetable sauce.
Head on over to my gluten-free recipe cards page to check out the recipe and browse the other cards in the collection.
What’s the craziest accident you’ve had in your kitchen?
I’ve had so many it’s hard to pick one. Something that happened just a couple of days ago – I set a stove burner to high heat to let it warm up without a pan on it (it’s an electrical stove so it’s harder to see when it’s on) and then proceeded to set a plastic container on top of the heated burner. It was a mess.
