And that's what makes the world go round - you have your preferences, I have mine, and others are out there to provide for them
I know some people learn better from videos but I don't enjoy them very much.
Sometimes I want discussion and peer experiences and that's when I come here; other times, I want a more structured approach and then I go elsewhere. And as good as many home cooks are, they're not usually trained in recipe writing or testing, so a random recipe found online may or may not work, or the author may or may not describe what they're doing correctly. I don't like to waste time, effort and money if I can avoid it.
This may not matter to you, and I'm not trying to convince you that it should. But it's why I like to buy cooking magazines.
