I don’t have a lot of counter space in my kitchen. When I am making something with a recipe, it’s hard to find a place where I can put it and see it easily while stirring and mixing, etc. Plus I am needing to get things closer to my eyes to see them these days.
I saw this idea in a magazine (I don’t remember which one — I think it was Taste of Home or one of its spin-offs). I tried it tonight and it worked great.
You just take a pants or skirt hanger and clip the magazine into it, then hang it from the knob of an upper cabinet. This would also work if you have recipes in a notebook and can remove a page at a time.
It would probably also work for recipe cards except that if they are clipped from one side it would probably lean: perhaps another card could be clipped to the other side to balance it, or if you had a similar hanger that was child-sized, that would work for cards or smaller recipes. They used to make little hangers with a single clothespin-type clip for hanging nylons after washing: that would work great if I could find one. I used to have several of them when I wasn’t using them: I’ll have to check through junk drawers to see if I kept any.
But I was thrilled: I loved having the recipe at almost eye level.
