Refrigerator Art: Recipes on the Fridge (Plus a Question)

When Dana asked you what's on your fridge, many of you said that there were recipes and menus stuck to your icebox. We do this too! Here's a comment and a question on keeping recipes on the fridge...

When we are in the middle of a big cooking project (like making wedding cake and ice cream for 150) it is very helpful to make all the calculations, ingredient multiplications, and recipe adjustments in advance and print out a recipe just for that baking or cooking session. The fridge is the perfect spot for this multiplied recipe. I adjusted my chocolate cake recipe, for instance, and multiplied it by 14, 9, and 5 for the various tier sizes. That way I wasn't making adjustments on the fly.

Now the question. I'd like to switch to a whiteboard for daily recipe and menu notes on the fridge. This saves paper for all but the largest of recipe projects.

I am still looking for a large whiteboard suitable for the fridge, however. I want something well-made that will get clean and not bear those scuffy, ugly marks that some whiteboards build up very quickly.

Does anyone have a fridge whiteboard you particularly like? Something large and well-magnetized? Or do you have any other suggestions for keeping a note-board close to hand in the kitchen?
