Free Recipes and Cheap Recipes Sources

I have a friend who is a foodie. She loves to cook and is always making new things. I was at her house the other day and I noticed the (literally) hundreds of cookbooks she has in the house. When I commented how many she had, she said, “Yeah, and it’s cost me a fortune.

    I rarely purchase a cookbook anymore. I get cookbooks from the library and either write out or type out and save to a thumb drive recipes I like. If I don’t like the recipe, I get rid of it. If I like it, I keep it on a my recipe thumb drive and print it out and 3 hole punch it and put it in the notebook I have created with dividers.

    You are correct, there are recipes everywhere!

    I have a couple of recipe books I use regularly. One I bought for 5 pence – many years ago and it has recipes for just about everything and they all work.

    Another is a book of wartime rationing recipes, good, healthy, tasty and cheap recipes – five ways to make sandwiched from carrots!

    I don’t buy cookbooks. There are plenty of free recipes online. I even look for ways to preserve my extra fruit and veggies online. I do baking and I get the recipes online. Now I have a collection on my computer.
    There are recipes on top of the quick oats and things like that. I try them and if the result is good, I keep the recipe.
    With all these recipes at fingertips, who wants to buy a cookbook?

    With all of the resources available on the Internet, what’s the point of buying a cookbook anymore? Seems like a waste of time and money to me, but to each his own.
