Using recipe cards is an easy way to keep track of all your favorite dishes. Small cards take up less room than larger magazine pages or full page print-outs, and having everything stored together allows you to stay organized.
Free Recipe Cards
To use the recipe cards, click on the image or caption of the set you want to open the file. You can edit the PDF yourself for a typed version or leave them blank for handwritten recipes. Once downloaded, you can also save them by clicking on the disk icon.
Use the chef's hat cards above for handing out your own recipes - they have a handy "From the kitchen of" line at the top. The cutting board version below is a nice choice for main dishes and sides, while the cookie and cupcake design is perfect for snacks and desserts.

Save Your Recipes
By using recipe cards you're able to save everything in a binder or box, making it easy to find favorites. Print the cards off onto cardstock instead of regular paper for a heavy-duty design, and consider laminating them so they hold up over the years against spills.
