It is a sickness. I love reading recipes whether form a book, magazine, or online. My husband thinks I need to be committed because I always think about food, lol.

I am trying to condense things a bit. I have gone through my cookbooks and copied the recipes that I think I might like. Then I paste them to a 4x6 index card and put them into a photo album. I do the same from magazines. Now I have a better chance of actually making some recipes.

So many recipes, so little time, lol.
You are so organized girl! I wish I was!!!

I was thinking the same thing.

I have a real illness when it comes to buying books and magazines and if it is a cookbook or a magazine about food then it is a thousand times worse. For many years now, I have been going to the library to check out the books before I buy. It has cut down the cost. I end up reading most of the cookbooks for entertainment or to get ideas, but rarely do I exactly follow the recipe.

I wouldn't have half the mess that I do if I could cut down on the reading material around here. I think it is an illness.

What a great thread. I am a visitor with the early symptoms of cookbook addiction. I would like to blame my mother for this has she has tons of cookbooks and food magazines and I remember her addiction for as long as my own memory goes back.

I am starting small with magazines but have about 20 or so books on my Wish List at A-zon pending purchase (in the future). Food has been a long-time obsession for me and now its slowly transitioned into cooking.

My name is Beretta and I have a Cookbook obsession. All in unison please: "Hi Beretta, welcome to the group".

I love them all; old, new and in between. I like finding well worn ones at auction and antique stores. I like finding church cookbooks with stars on recipes that were "winners" and notes on the sides of recipes. I like new, glossy books with gorgeous photos. So many cookbooks, so little time.

I find I use ones that show technique more than actual recipes. I usually look at the recipes for an idea, then wing it from there. Technique however needs to be more specific in my experience

CIA's The New Professional Chef is probably my favorite.
