I've talked on here quite a few times about recipe boxes and my desire to have one long-lasting recipe box that I envision being passed down and around, among my children. (Although for this to truly happen, it would probably be a good idea if I started following a recipe instead of always "winging it" in the kitchen.)
Anyhoo, leave it to Lotta to come along and inspire me some more, and to get my wheels turning once again when it comes to documenting, savoring, and saving my "work" in the kitchen.
If you have not yet cracked the pages of her Handmade Living book, do yourself a favor and get your hands on a copy. In fact, if you're anything like me, I should have simply purchased the book to begin with instead of paying all fines for the multiple times I have checked it out of the library….
Every page is full of inspiration and ideas.
But one that has stuck with me these past few weeks is her recipe journals–clipped recipes, hand-written notes, ideas, sketches. I love everything about this idea. And I love the idea of a shelf full of years of kitchen journals.
What about you–do you keep something similar to this? How do you record your work in the kitchen?
