Here's a sample that my way-talented photographer-assistant Lucy did:
It sure beats the standard hand-written recipe card, and you can print as many as you like. If it sounds like something you want to try, here are some tips:
- Stick to short and simple recipes. Longer ones won't fit on one card, and most people are more likely to use and appreciate quick favorites.
- Recipe card boxes that hold 4x6 inch cards are easier to find than the larger 5x7 inch size, but I would recommend a larger size.
- Photo organizers can just as easily house your photo recipe cards
- Test print your first card for font size/legibility before making twenty.
- Find a font that works and stick with it. Too many font changes=cheesy.
- Do this a little at a time. Whenever you make one of your favorite recipes, photograph it before devouring.
- Don't fill the entire frame with the food. Leave some space for text.
And if you do it—post and share something for our still life theme this month.
