I have three. One is a super old one that is huge and is actually my hubby's. It was his mom's before that. It's a sturdy old thing. We once used it to hold up the end of a couch temporarily until we could get a new leg for it.

I also have a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that my parents got me when I graduated from high school. I also have the Cooking for Geeks cookbook which is the only one I've actually spent a decent amount of time with.

I have a decent collection of recipes in digital format that I've gotten from lots of different sources (magazines, digital recipe savers, friends and family). Even those I don't really use much. Even my own I don't really use much. Most of my recipes are around more for the hubby to use than for me. Usually if I do look for recipes it's for inspiration and technique how to's (what temp to cook cornbread at or such). I also have a few cooking sites bookmarked.

I thought 85 was a lot. I sold most of those the first time we moved to Mexico. This time I brought maybe 15 cookbooks with me because I find the internet a really good source for recipes when I'm looking for something. But then there's all those Mexican cookbooks to look at and buy ....

Hmmmm...very nice, Uncle Bob. Would that librarian look quite a bit like the person who stares back at you from the mirror?

Heaven-To-Betsy No!!! I never learned (nor understood) the Dewey decimal system..much to the chagrin of my High School Librarian ~~And I assure you (and the little brown-eyed girl) of the fact that my librarian being a 29 year old, absolutely gawgeous, Cajun brunette has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that she is in my employ.....
