I remember standing in someone’s kitchen, gazing at an array of cookbooks nicely displayed on a baker’s rack. “Wow,” I marveled, “you really love cooking and baking.”
Her response? A small laugh and the confessions that she almost never used them. That sent me home to scan the shelf of cookbooks I owned. Several volumes contained a single recipe that I referred to.
Today it’s your turn to flip through your cookbooks. Are you holding onto some because of a few recipe? Photocopy, scan, or rewrite those recipes and donate the books. Do you find it easier to look up recipes online? You might not need a cookbook at all.
