This week the Geeks are talking cookbooks. I love cookbooks and have highlighted this before... see my previous collection roundup to see my favourites. I mainly buy vegetarian and lately vegan cookbooks, unless it is a specific topic I am otherwise interested in, for example, a cookbook about tea or a local, charity cookbook. As for the cookbooks I use most often, I'd say lately I've been trying out quite a few recipes from Jae Steel's Get It Ripe; it's one of my most recent purchases and I'm still getting to know it. She has wonderful cookie recipes!
But the recipe collection I use most frequently is one I've collected myself; over the years as I find recipes I go back to again and again I've written them out on recipe cards and filled a small photo album. It's extremely convenient; each pocket is the size of a recipe card, and made of plastic -- easy to wipe splashes and spills off. And it makes it easy for whoever is making dinner to quickly locate the required favourite recipe, whether it is me or my baking fiend of a husband.
