I agree. I just forgot the second part of the two-part comment. Yes, if you don't cook alot, you're screwed. But I have see professional recipes, printed in cookbooks or food magazines that are off-kilter too. There is less chance of getting a clunker from a pro source though.

About damaging their self-confidence? They probably didn't feel too secure with the concept of cooking to begin with. It took me a lot of falls before I realized ice skates and I were not compatible. I'm either more tenacious than some, or just plain clueless. Probably option b.

Exactly this. There are just as many duds in books as there are online. My success rate with online recipes is higher. But I still love reading cookbooks!

And since we are talking about the internet, I just read this article about Jacques Pepin.

He had a mild stroke last Sunday. He has one more showing starting on PBS in the fall. Then he will stop appearing on TV. It will be his last show. He will also have a new cookbook coming out at the same time. By the way, he is 79 years old.

Carrot marmalade was an old farm wife "make do" recipe, it was cheaper than orange marmalade. This recipe is similar to the old recipes I have seen. This recipe uses fresh ginger, the old recipes tended to use dry ginger, cloves or cinnamon.
