My favorite FREE printable recipe cards

I, like most of you love looking for new recipes. Sometimes I rip them out of magazines and throw them in a pile never to be filed and/ or seen again. Sometimes I search online for recipes, but most days this doesn't occur until my son goes down for his afternoon nap and I am scrambling to come up with something edible for dinner. Because I don't have a printer I jot these recipes down on random pieces of paper.

The boys in my house are picky eaters and most days they don't care for what I cook. However, sometimes they really like it. They like it so much that the following week they ask me to make it for them again. So I go searching for that piece of paper with the recipe on it and, you guessed it, it is no where to be found. Perhaps it is in the ever growing pile of stuff that needs to be filed away. Perhaps it got thrown in the garbage on one of my many attempts to de-clutter my living/ dining room. Either way it is gone forever and I am back at square 1, trying to find a new recipe that I can pass off as the old one....sigh.

To make life a bit easier I have compiled a list of some of the most clever and beautiful recipe cards I could find on the web. Did I mention they are all FREE? I have absolutely no excuse not to print some of these bad boys off, have them handy when I am scrambling for something tasty for dinner and keep my living/ dining room a bit more organized.  My goal is to compile my favorite recipes as I try them out and share them with you :) So without further adu, here they are:
