Pinterest couldn’t help me this time

spoons and spices

I’ve collected recipes since I was in junior high.  To practice accuracy and build up my typing speed, I spent hours, that lapsed into days, using a Royal Manual typewriter that put text to paper with a spool of inked, cloth ribbon. Typing my mother’s collection of recipes onto index cards was the ideal project. How many years ago was that? Hmmm .. well, over 50 for sure.

When I mastered 110 words per minute, with 5 errors consistently, I switched to stashing recipes from pages I tore out of magazines or cut out of newspapers. How many years have a relocated and moved that box of bits and pieces of paper? Too many. I didn’t collect many cookbooks. It me too long to remember where I’d seen a recipe I wanted to try. Silly me, I had the same problem with my precious box of culinary delights.

Along came Pinterest and now, I’m ditching all that paper as fast as I can. Today, I encountered a dilemma. I have a recipe for Seasoned Salt that I want to store on-line and can’t find the original source anywhere and no go-to source on my copy. To add a pin, a link to a website is necessary. Lucky for me, I already have one.

Seasoned Salt

Yield: 1 1/3 cups

  • 1 cup salt
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dried whole oregano

  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. celery seeds
