“When I’m not in the mood to cook,
Pop it like it’s hot, pop it like it’s hot, pop it like it’s hot.
When I need to get in a groove,
Work it like it’s hot, work it like it’s hot, work it like it’s hot.
I bust out this book and get the food,
Chop it like it’s hot, chop it like it’s hot, chop it like it’s hot.
My husband and I just recently celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary and it has gotten me thinking about the things we’ve accomplished and learned together these past 7 years.
One accomplishment is how ratty and torn my recipe book has gotten. I made it from a brand new photo album when we were first married and now it’s almost starting to fall apart. It’s time for a new one.
Something that we both learned from each other happened probably during our second year of marriage. My husband gave me a a giant cookbook as a Mother’s Day gift and I started crying…
I was crying because I hate cooking, so why would the man I love give me a freakin’ cookbook?? He obviously doesn’t love me or care about me enough to know I don’t enjoy cooking… We talked about it and he said he didn’t know I didn’t like cooking and was trying to be thoughtful in a sense where he loves my cooking and thought I would enjoy more ideas. His heart was definitely in the right place, so he was forgiven, and now it’s a story we laugh about. You definitely learn a lot about each other during those first few years! And even years later!
I made these cookbook printables just in time for Mother’s Day, which is funny to me because I would’ve hated this years ago!
So to all of you moms who hate cooking, this book is about to change that! You know those kitchen decoration prints with the funny puns?? I incorporated them into the category titles for each section. Need a dessert recipe for Game Night?? Get ready to “Watch Me Whip, Watch Me Nae Nae” because the song will get you pumped to make it and get it done!
What I love about binder cookbooks is how easy they are to incorporate new recipes. Especially with Pinterest available, it’s been such a game-changer. I’m able to print the recipe from the blog/website, stick it in a sheet protector, file it under the correct section, and bam! It’s done. No more handwriting on recipe cards.
- Find a super cute binder. I found this navy and silver foil one at Target. I also bought the light pink sectional filers from Target as well.
- Get yourself some sheet protectors as well. (50 page protectors fills a 1″ binder.)
- Print out my free printables. (To get the free printables, click on the “download button” at the end of this post.)
- Print out your favorite recipes.
- Organize them in your new Chop it Like it’s Hot Cookbook.
Because this could essentially be a Mother’s Day gift, I added a few of my favorite (and my family’s) recipes as well! Mom needs new idea, amiright??
