Off-Subject Request for Help: Words to Eat By Needs Categories!

As my little blog grows, I’m increasingly frustrated by the monthly archiving system offered by Blogger. Who’s going to look for the recipe for Chocolate Cappuccino Wafers in an archive entitled “December”? As I write each post, I wish I could assign it a sensible category for future reference–“Dessert,” say, or “Restaurants”–but according to Blogger they don’t support such a thing. There are an awful lot of food blogs out there with categories, and while I’m guessing most of them simply aren’t Blogger-based, I’m hoping that somebody’s figured out a work-around for HTML-dunces like me. Anybody? Help?
