Recipe Organization

I've found that, either as I age or as I get more recipes, I'm having more trouble remembering all the ingredients. I need to decide on an organizational system.

What do you use to keep track of your recipes? A database? Spreadsheet? Notebook? File cards? Post-its? Commercial software?

Re: Recipe Organization

Call me a geek but...

I wrote my own as a web application running in my server at home.

Done with PHP with MySQL as the database

It is crude, but fast and works for me.

Re: Recipe Organization

I'm actually leaning towards a card box, myself. Low tech, but I won't have to print something to take it into the kitchen.

Re: Recipe Organization

My card box is 4x6. It will hold just about any size recipe. Tabbed sections (deserts, casseroles, salads, soups etc.) helps.

Re: Recipe Organization

I decided to go with Big Oven. The app ties into their website and even has an iPhone version. It has the #1 feature I wanted, easy import of recipes found on various websites (couldn't be easier, copy the recipe to the clipboard, then click Import. A preview screen pops up that lets you mark which is the title, ingredients, description, etc.). It even calculates the fat, carbs, etc., of any recipe you enter and will scale recipes automatically (good for me as I usually cook for one).
