Recipe cards – do you use them? This article explains the history of the 3X5 handwritten recipe card, & how the way we write & store recipes has changed in our digital age. I still have recipe cards written by my mom, and I love seeing her handwriting on the yellowed, smudged paper. I don’t use cards anymore myself, but I do have boxes full of them. I’ve collected them since before I was married.  I store most of my recipes here at the blog and/or on  a software program called MasterCook. Do you have family recipes on cards?
