ABC order - by adjective?

I gather many recipes online. Some come from other blogs, some from recipe sites, some from email newsletters. I copy them into work documents and save to a file named "Recipes." Ah, you guessed it; I don't always change the name of the recipe, making it a challenge to find later. Just for fun (and for La Petite's amusement), here are a few examples.

Under B for Baked:
Baked Crab Cakes
Baked Hush Puppies
Baked Zucchini and Tomatoes

Classic Baked Corn Pudding is actually filed under C for Classic.

Also under the letter C:
Country Swiss Chicken Thighs
Creamy Tomato Basil Pasta with Shrimp
Crispy and Creamy Potato Pie

Not one, but three recipes find a home under the letter E for - are you ready for this? - Easy. How about Fresh or Five Minute, both brought to you by the letter F? Those make the two Fruit Cocktail selections look almost logical. G is even with E: three Grilled something-or-others make the list just before Gumbo.

Remember my home made baked macaroni and cheese? It's not listed under Baked or Macaroni or even Cheese. It's under M, though - for My Mac and Cheese Bake. Yes, it is. That's almost as nonsensical as Overnight (O) or Pull-apart (P). S has Simple, Savory and Special.

And for the last, La Petite's favorite filing term: Q. Quick. Quick and Easy.

At least I only filed one under T for The.

Hilarious. We have the same problem in our 3-ring binder of recipes.

I LOVE this! Unfortunately, I'd probably forget where I filed them. :) I tag mine on del.icio.us by cuisine type or country of origin (RecipesFinland, RecipesDessert, etc.). :)

Haha, that is too funny. Sounds like you need to adjust your filing system. :-)
