I set up a personal wiki for cataloguing and adapting recipes, and now I'm realizing that's total overkill, I think I'll just use a notebook.

@lrhodes I love the idea. Super overkill and kinda past the original use case, but funny idea.

@chillja Yeah, it resulted in well-constructed recipe pages, and the structure would have made it relatively easy to browse and find specific recipes, but building each one out and revising them was too clunky.

A lightweight, flat-file CMS with custom YAML headers might work better. Less overhead, plus you could make the ingredients into a tag list.

Gonna try a bound notebook first, though. Been reading up on analog indexing in preparation.
