This has been successfully used for 2 yrs now. A thick wipable binder, card stock, and sleeve protectors. We used a photo binder and 3 types of card stock for ours. But you can use as many variations as you desire.
The first type is for side dishes. I pulled out all recipes; from friends, internet, cookbooks, etc, that we use.
And this is for drinks and desserts
Only tried and true recipes make the cut. We toss what we don't like. I can add more sections if I need to, but I haven't needed too yet. I do have a small collection of misc on white paper. You could use plain color card stock and make a rainbow with it. Just make it to suit your personality. :)
Also there is a section in the back for all recipes I want to try.
