We had a lovely break in Idaho for three weeks and we're back into the swing of things here in the Nutshell in the sweaty East. I'm ready to begin again with my tips!
Today's Tip: Only keep cookbooks you regularly use for multiple recipes-- or just copy down the ones you use onto index cards.
I'm not sure it's fair to say that I like to cook. What I like is looking at, and then watching others (and myself) eat a yummy meal that I made. I like being successful with my cooking. I like it being done. I'm not particularly fond of the process. But I do change things up and try out various recipes often.
I used to own too many cookbooks. They were cute and thematic and I used them once-in-awhile...or never. But ever since I started using Pinterest for recipe-saving I hardly ever use them. There are just a few that I've kept that I really like. I suppose you could say, Marie Kondo style, that they bring me joy. So I do have a few. But I've also copied some of them down, old-school style, into an index card box, alphabetically. Those are the ones I use a lot that aren't on Pinterest. My Grandma's chocolate cookies, Mom's pie crust, that sort of thing.
Give your ,cookbooks a thorough and honest looking-over, and use Pinterest if you don't already. I'm inspired by writing this to go through mine again.
It's nice to be back to writing here again! Have a great day!
