I can’t quite remember where I came across this brilliant tip last week, but I wanted to share it with you before it slips my mind.
Here it is: When you’re heading out to shop for food for a recipe, instead of making a list of the items you need, snap a photo of the recipe on your phone and take it with you. That way, you won’t misplace your list or forget to write something down. You can take snapshots of pages in cookbooks or magazines’and multiple recipes at one time. If by chance the store doesn’t have one of the ingredients on your list, you can move on to one of the other recipes you’ve captured.
I also think it serves as a great index for those nights when you’re on your way home from work and you realize you don’t have a plan for dinner in place. Scroll through the photographed recipes on your phone and choose one to cook for that night’ based on what you have in the fridge and pantry or what you can grab on the way home.
Do you have any quick tips to share for on-the-go and/or digital recipe organization?
