Design Scout: Remembering Recipes

Knicknacks for those of us old fashioned enough to still write everything down

Rifle Paper Company Heirloom Recipe Card Box
Our favorite stationery company outdoes itself with a gorgeous, resalvaged wood and multiple card designs to choose from. We’re partial to Spoons ($28 for a pack of 40) and Blue Floral ($12 for a pack of 12).

Blue Ribbon General Store Kitchen Pencils
Cliches and annoying questions be damned, we still think these are adorable writing utensils to have around the cooking area.
