Keeping track of your favorite food recipes can be a hassle. Here is my method for managing and sharing my recipes. I use Google Documents to store all my recipes. Once you have created a Google Documents account simply create a new collection call My Documents. Then create a sub-collection call Recipes. In the Recipes folder you can create sub-collections such as Desserts, Entrees, Salads, Soups, etc.

Create your individual recipes as new documents in Google Documents or upload the recipe files from your computer. I print my recipes and put them in super heavy weight plastic sheet protectors then in a three ring notebook. The sheet protectors do a great job of keeping the recipe looking nice.

Sharing recipes is a snap with Google Documents. With your new recipe documents created, select the share feature to share your recipes with family and friends.
