Default Recipe storage

In this day of internet recipes, what’s your favorite way to store your recipe for quick recall at a later date? Database, pics, hand written, an app? I need to get a bunch of handwritten recipes into a different format and would welcome your great idea!

A MS Word document.
Copy and Paste from internet articles. Edit if desired.

Add photo's if you want.
If you have "voice to text" software it can be easier to convert your handwritten recipes to an electronic format. Another option is to scan your hand docs(jpg or pdf format) and put that into the Word document.

That is what I do also. Then I save them all in a Folder "Recipes"

For hand written recipes you could photograph or scan them and then put them into photo program which allows you to attach keywords. Enter keywords to identify main ingredients and then you have a searchable database. Lightroom would be overkill but would do the job very nicely. Here's a guide to free software.

On those rare occasions that a recipe is a true home run, I will do as others have done and that is save it in a recipes file on my desk top screen. If it doesn't get on base it is rejected and a search for a different version begins the next time that kind of dish sounds good. My reasoning is you can't expect different results when you do the same thing over and over.

Use the old TRS-80 micro computer. In the '80s it was said that's all they were good for.

I use the Notes app on my iPad and iPhone. You can edit from any device including my laptop via browser. It syncs across all my devices you caN quickly search/find within it and I can email the recipe to friends if needed.

Recipes we don’t need no stinking recipes. I usually just jot down the info on a piece of scrap paper.

That's what I do, too. Sometimes I will take a picture of the recipe so it's saved in my phone.
I do most things with my phone these days.
I still have a metal recipe card box with my classics
