Journals For All Occasions! Recipe Journal Review #HGG2015


When you hear the word journal, you probably think of a book where (normally) girls write down their dreams, events from the day, and hopes and plans for the future. However, Journals Unlimited offers a wealth of journals for all different occasions and themes, and for all different people!



We received the Recipes Cooking Journal for review, and this is something that will come in very handy! I love collecting recipes from friends, various websites, Churches we visit...anywhere I can find a good recipe. I have a stack of recipes that have been given to me, or I've printed off a website, and now I actually have a book I can organize and write them down in so the whole family can use them! This Cooking Journal has categories for Appetizers, Main Dishes, Sides Soups & Salads, and Desserts. The pages are nice thick, sturdy paper that won't get ripped or torn easily. 



I like the setup of the recipe journal, in that each page is for a single recipe. There's plenty of room to list all the necessary ingredients, give clear instructions for preparation and baking/cooking, notes about freezing, reheating, etc, and on the back of the page, notes for you to write down extra information about the recipe, maybe a favorite memory around the recipe, or even a note about who gave you the recipe. This isn't just your typical recipe book, this really turns it into a journal, something that will be loved and passed down for years!

Be sure to check out Journals Unlimited's great selection of themed journals for the holidays. They have journals for road trips, birthdays, camping, cruising, boating, dining out, prayer journals, golfing, running, and so much more!

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information.
