    Do you still use your cookbooks?




    I mostly turn to the internet for recipes these days, but I still love to hang onto my beloved cookbooks. I had a bunch more before moving but gave them away just 'cuz they were taking so much space and too heavy to pack.

    This is what my collection looks like right now.-img_2186-jpg

    Do you still use your cookbooks when looking for recipes or the internet?

    I still keep mine as well but they are now collecting dust because of how easy it is to get on the Internet for a good and RATED recipe. Speaking of ratings, don't forget to rate recipes here, you get points to spend in the gift market if you do!

    I used to have a large collection of cookbooks, but it shrinks after each move, especially the most recent one across country. Now I just hold on to my favorites. I think I have about 10 now.

    I have a small collection of cookbooks and yes I use them. My problem is I have such a big evolving amount of recipes that there are many I only cook once cuz I forget about them. My folder of printed recipes is beyond out of control. Used to be all organized and now is a heaping pile to shuffle thru each week. (while continually adding more)

    I have saved only 3-4 cookbooks... the things I find I use the most are the family recipes, from my mother, grandmother, and even GREAT-grandmother! Some of the ingreds have changed over the decades, but a bunch of it remains usable!

    When I need something "different," I pop on here (OK, well, except for the break, but I had already saved a bunch of stuff in .PDF files) or a couple other places.

    Dear Hubby is more adventurous and subscribes (or checks daily?) on this "other" site who has some good stuff... He does 90% of our cooking lately, knows I'm havin' a hard time and all, and has come home with some seriously interesting things to cook! LOL!

    So, I guess the answer is half 'n' half. I use fambly stuff, he finds/adjusts Internet recipes!
