    Recipe Holder

    Our counter tops are always too crowded to hold a recipe, so I am always loosing the darn thing in the clutter. Here's my simple solution.
    Cabinet over prep area:

    Now a small magnet on the outside of the door holds the elusive recipe, right at eye level:

    Ha!! Great minds think a like! We have a steel range hood and fridge doors. I hate leaving a recipe book next to the stove when we cook so I came up with this last week. RE glued into a drilled hole in a cork.

    I did a similar thing in our kitchen. I tool a small sheet of steel, painted it with blackboard paint and used a little hot glue to attach it to the back of a cabinet.

    I made a couple of racks to hold measuring cups and spoons and used RE magnets to hold those to the back of the door. I also use it to store some common little reference cheat sheets I made.

    On the front, I've now got a pretty good area to use for putting recipes on.

    Now all I need to do is make some handy little grabbers, like either corks, or some kind of turned cover for the magnets.
