Things I Love Thursday-Everyday Food

February 19, 2009 at 2:46 pm 3 comments

I’ve been subscribing to Martha Stewarts’ Everyday Food for about 3 years not, and I absolutely love it.
The recipes are easy to follow and usually don’t need that many ingredients. I especially love the weekly menus. They give you 5 recipes along with a grocery list for an entire workweek.
After 3 years of subscribing I’ve accumulated a lot of magazines. To cut down on storage I created a spreadsheet.
I have different categories such as appetizers, desserts, vegetables, but I also have meals categorized by main ingredient. That way I can read the grocery ad, see whats on sale and reference my spreadsheet for a recipe.
When I categorize a recipe, I put the name of the recipe along with the date of the issue it came from. When I want that recipe, I go to Martha’s website and type in the name of the recipe I want and then print it out.

For more TILT check out the Diaper Diaries.

    cooking AND computer work? I think you just made the dinner task even less appealing for me!

    I love this magazine too. I got it for a year and saved all my issues, but your method is much smarter.
