So for my 1st day of doing something for myself I am going to begin the ever daunting task of organizing my recipes. I must say I absolutely love Pinterest and the endless number of ideas, crafts, and most of all recipes that can be found there. My husband and I use it all the time to find recipes to try when we are getting tired of the same old things.
That being said, sometimes it gets cumbersome trying to sift through all the posts on a board trying to find that one dish you want to have again. Then there is the unfortunate times when you find something you absolutely love and go back to find it at a future date and for some unknown reason it’s gone. Nowhere to be found. Yes… this happened to me recently. We had found a soup we absolutely loved and now I cannot find it again. The link just disappeared. Finally, what about making notes that you can refer to quickly and easily about changes to a recipe? If I had them saved to another location or printed and put in a book of my “Internet Faves” it would be easy to make notes and tweak as needed for my families preferences. Otherwise, I find myself trying, months later, to remember what the heck it was I needed to do different on a particular dish.
So, I realize maybe my first choice isn’t a “fun” thing to do persay. But for me it’s something I have wanted to do for months and never made a priority because it was just for my benefit. So starting today I’m going to begin saving the recipes I’ve found online that we really like and I’m beginning with Soups.
I printed the recipes out and put them in sheet protectors in a 3-ring binder like this one you can get from Amazon.
I now have hard copies of our favorites and can make notes and adjustments as I desire.
If you want to know more about what I’m referring to in doing something for myself be sure and check out this post.
I thought I would share the links for the recipes I have saved. So here is my list of our 5 favorite soups found on the internet that are in my new Internet Recipe Book.
slow cooker creamy tortellini soup
I recently tried this and found it is absolutely delicious! The italian sausage gave it tons of flavor and just the combinations in this soup were excellent.
Slow Cooker Beef and Barley Soup
I’ve made this a couple times and we really enjoy the flavor. Plus being a crock pot meal makes it that much better when you need a yummy homemade meal on a busy night, cause who isn’t busy, right?
CROCKPOT STUFFED PEPPER SOUP
This recipe from Moms with Crockpots is simply delicious. I really enjoy stuffed peppers but my husband isn’t a big fan of the pepper “shell”. This, however, gives all that wonderful stuffed pepper flavor without the overpowering pepper shell.
Italian-Style Chicken and Mushroom Soup
My husband loves this soup! This is one he asks for once a year for something different. It takes a little bit of work but is well worth it in the end.
This is one of my faves. It is wonderful on a cold day or for a simple Christmas lunch.
I hope you have a chance to give these a try as they all have wonderful flavor. If you do let me know what you think. And don’t forget to share what you did for YOU today!
