I have a shelf of cookbooks, which I love flipping through from time to time. But these days the majority of my recipes come from right here on the interwebz. Sometimes I print the recipes and keep them tucked next to my cookbooks, but other times I'll just read them off of my iPhone. (I guess an iPad would be nice in this situation, huh?). Anyways, there is nothing wrong with this. It's the digital age and this is how we do things now. But isn't it sort of sad to lose the authenticity of hand written recipes? There's something so great about writing out an entire recipe and then referring to it time after time. My grandmother was a fantastic cook and had a massive collection of tried and true recipes. Luckily for me (and the rest of my family), my aunt is an incredibly dedicated archivist and she scanned in all of my grandmother's recipes (plus millions of photos and other documents) and gave each family member a digital copy. It's amazing! And she could have just typed in the recipes and sent around a massive word doc. But I'm so glad she didn't. I just love seeing my grandmother's handwriting. It makes me smile.
