The secret to my success with getting biscuits on the table is several years ago I wrote out the recipe (and it's doubled and tripled self) on a piece of paper and stuck it on the inside of cabinet door. Now, when I want biscuits, I open the cabinet to the glasses and voila, there it is. I did the same with my tweaked pancake recipe. The base recipe is on the inside of the cabinet and I adjust the flour/grains every time I make it, based on what I have available.
So there. My secret's out. Use it for your own good. Recipes you love that make your family happy should go where you can find them easily. And who cares what the inside of your cabinets looks like? If anyone knows you well enough to come into your home and look for her own glass, she should know you well enough to not care about your "notes to self."
