I've started entereing recipes I try and like into the SP Recipe Builder right away, along with any notes from my cooking experience. That way I know I can find the recipe again AND it's simple to add it to my food tracker moving forward :)

What I do about the many recipes I find in magazines....
I've decided that, altho, I want to try several of the magazine recipe's I find, I don't have to clip it out and save in a pile of clipped recipe's. What a mess! Plus, I discovered that the pile of clippings frequently gets forgotten about, anyway. This is how I "organize" AND discipline myself in not continually fixing the fancy dessert recipe I may've found, etc. If it's NOT a dessert and the recipe ends up being a keeper...I will copy it to my file of recipes.
Many of the magazines feature some tantelizing dessert recipe. SO, when I've found a recipe I want to fix...I fix it only once. I DON'T clip it out & save it. I sure don't need yet another dessert recipe, anyway. Fixing it once, satisfies my curiousity.
Plan out the meals that you are going to make for the week. Figure out what you have on hand or what is on sale at the stores for the week, search through Sparkrecipes, your Spark Cookbook or other healthy recipe books and sites. Find the recipes and enter them into your meal planner for the week.
It is fun to try new healthy recipes. Sometimes, you find a recipe that is a real keeper!
By planning out your meals ahead of time, you reduce the last minute bad choices with grabbing fast food and making a quick processed frozen food bad choice.
