I'm trying only to make recipe cards for favorite dishes and desserts that I make time and again. And I seldom follow an original recipe exactly as I find it. There's usually a little too much of this or I don't like that, I'll leave it out, etc. I think most every cook does that.
This one is so delicious that it's hard for me to want to cook asparagus any other way. There's never any leftovers with this side dish.
Sometimes I don't pay much attention to the cooking times. Like on this one, I don't know how long I sauté the asparagus. I just keep poking it with a fork until I feel it's ready for the next step. I suppose the times must be pretty close though.
This dessert is so yummy, and it's most yummiest is the next day. So I make it a day ahead of time.
Look at the fun idea I thought of for making this card work. I can't believe I even thought of doing it this way. I'll be making more like this rather than the pieces that just swing out of the way and turn upside down.
The recipe box itself has finally gotten some scrapbook paper on it to cover the craft paper mache color. Then some Washi Tape on the edges. What to do on it next hasn't come to me yet.
The cards inside.
Nope, not the easiest filing system for recipes, but since they will only be favorite ones, I don't expect that they will become so many that I won't be able to locate what I want.
I have a little more time than I used to, to do the cooking. I'm scaring the crap out of myself, but I'm almost starting to like it ...on some days.
I've made stuffed mushrooms twice now looking for a really good ingredient combination. So far I'm not very impressed. Have you got one you love?
(Did I really say that?!)
