The Type A person in me decided I needed the organize all my recipe cards and make them match! Because planning our weekly menu is not my favorite thing to do, but maybe flipping through some pretty cards will make this task more enjoyable? (The verdict on that is still out, but I do enjoy looking at my recipe box now – that’s gotta count for something, right?)

I think these cards would be so cute to give as a gift to your family and friends. Compile all the recipes you have from your great-grandma and give them to your sister’s for mother’s day. Or make a jar of your favorite salsa, then give it to your neighbor with a recipe card attached. Food is my love language, so I’d be totally happy with either of those ideas!

I designed these cards in PicMonkey to be super simple – just the way I like it! They are color-coded based on the dish/recipe you are writing out, but I’ve also included some blank ones. That way you can use alllll pink for “Grandma’s Classics” or alllllll blue for “Baby Shower Favorites.” Label them however you’d like!
