We decided to go on the hunt for beautiful recipe diaries and card organizers. Recipe card organizers keep doing extremely well, maybe because they’re more difficult to ignore than a tab on a computer or a tablet. We found dozens of great options that would be perfect if you prefer to check your recipes off of a list or a beautiful card, not click them on a screen. For recipe journals, we found a wide range of options, from shiny, vintage bound books to elegant folders that would be perfect for jotting down recipes and ideas. We didn’t forget the classic recipe boxes that have so much to offer regarding conveniency and aesthetic too!
Moleskine Passions Recipe Journal – $13.57. Being addicted to computer or tablets as much as the next person doesn’t mean we cannot appreciate a good pen and a good block. If I told you I used my Moleskine Recipe Journal every day, would you believe me?
Recipe Keeper – $18.15. We love the shiny and vintage look of this recipe book, but it’s also ideal for the home cook. You will find fill-in recipe cards inside, and also 20 adhesive sheets to add all those slips of paper with random recipes jotted down or recipes scrapped from magazines.
