365 Project – 25: On my kitchen shelf (January 25, 2012)

Shutter Speed: 1/50, Aperture: F2, ISO: 400

For the most part I cook without measuring, and use my eyes, nose and taste buds to whip together a meal. When I need a recipe I occasionally search online, but, mostly I cherish my well-worn cookbooks, with their dog-eared, stained pages. If I HAVE to pick my favorites, I’d probably choose my ReBar Modern Food Cookbook, Moosewood Cookbook, andThe Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. Today I’m actually going to use the chicken cacciatore recipe from my Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Cookbook. Then there are those recipes I try from Sunset Magazine, et al. Oh, it’s so hard to pick just a few of my favs! Not only do I use them for cooking but, I thoroughly enjoy leafing through cooking magazines and cookbooks just for the pure pleasure of it. My husband can’t imagine HOW I can enjoy “reading” a cookbook but, I also can’t relate to his love of Sports Illustrated. To each his/her own!! 🙂 LOL

    Since my recipes seem to be everywhere, I’m thinking about scanning them into a single file and referencing them using a tablet, one that I will eventually *have* to purchase.

    Have you thought about placing a tablet (iPad/Galaxy Tablet) in the kitchen? I’ve seen some paraphernalia that holds a tablet either on/near the preparation surface or on the face of the cabinets to make checking the recipe a bit easier. I’m waiting for a refrigerator mount, so I can store the tablet in the mount while I’m cooking – it would be out of the way, but easy to reference. I thought about placing one into the counter top, but it would make for a difficult facetime discussion.

    Excuse me, dear. I can’t see you through the dough!

      Patrick! Long time no hear! 🙂 I actually have a laptop station right in my kitchen, NEXT to my cookbooks. When we remodeled our kitchen I intentionally put it there so I could easily google and use recipes but, I still prefer my cookbooks. Probably it’s why I also haven’t embraced a kindle or nook and I even still have an old flip phone because I continue to resist technology. So weird since I was such a techie back in the day, huh?

      Well, it was great seeing your comment. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂


The good, the bad, the ugly...I can take it. Talk at me! :)
