Your Recipe Box or Mine

OK, raise your hands out there. Do you copy multiple recipes from when someone else requests a recipe? Like multiple cookie recipes?
I checked the beginning of my recipe box because mis7up has this idea for a blog that has you going to your very first recipe in your box that you haven't made before, making it, reviewing & photographing the results, and emailing to mis7up for posting in a
fun blog. This blog idea sounds interesting, so I selected my recipe. The blog sounds like a weekly event so I looked ahead to the next several recipes. What do I find? Several cookie recipes in a row. Then about 5 very tasty martini recipes, obviously
from a request for recipes post from someone else. If I posted one of those martini recipes each week, everyone would think I have a drinking problem. Who am I kidding? I still have wine coolers in the fridge that are a year old, unopened bottles of liquor
from a party 3 years ago, and quite frankly, would probably never make a martini for myself and my friends like their beer more than fruity drinks.
I am trying to eat healthier, so I am avoiding the cheesecake recipe that sounds delish, the cookie recipes, and the martinis. So my first recipe selected is Bacon Macaroni Salad. Sounds incredibly healthy, doesn't it? I'll have to adjust that one using
The Soft Christmas Cookie recipe might be OK. DH likes soft cookies and I can just avoid them.
Do you find your recipe box full of recipes that you now believe you would probably never make? I deleted some that I'm not even sure why they were ever in there in the first place.
What is the status of YOUR recipe box?
