I don't use boxes per se, I favor 3 ring binders and page protectors. I have enough clutter issues without having loose bits of paper in my kitchen. My mom had one--it was so cute too, but it was mainly a big mess.
First though, I started a family tradition of giving a new family recipe book as a wedding present to the new couple. (Despite the fact that the first and so far only recipients are now divorced, I will continue this tradition with my remaining siblings and my divorced sib when he remarries. He gave the recipe book back to me and I now have a template of my creation). I am really proud of how this book came out.
In addition to the recipes from both families, I included stories and photographs of the bride and groom. Many of the recipes came from me--expounding on my Mom's old recipes.
Jamey's family has some awesome recipes his Mom put together for us for Christmas. Jamey had transcribed a few of those years earlier and I added our new family recipe faves. I also have an old faithful Betty Crocker cookbook from the 60s, I use for basic recipes.
Someday, Jamey wants to do make a recipe book like we made for Phil and Ashley for his family, but bound in a 3 ring binder.
You know I do have a recipe box, I love it because it is bee themed, but it's just decorative.
The recipe books area so nice. Great idea. I had actually just found my mom's recipe book when the Mason-Dixon thing came out--quite coincidentally--it had been in a box for over a decade. I just have to remember to photograph it!
