Frequently, especially when a CB challenge kicks off.How often do you consult your cookery books? ]
Yes, when I get a new one, I read it like a novel, then I go back through and mark the recipes I definitely want to make, and I also mark the ones I definitely don’t want to make. Saves me time later when I’m looking through them for ideas.Anyone a cover-to-cover reader or just home in on the recipes that interest you?
Yes.Do you browse them in your free time opening them at random pages?
Yes, and yes. My comments are usually more about whether I liked something or not. I don’t change recipes a lot, except for a minor substitution here and there.Do you mark and annotate the recipes? Do you look at them before cooking something from them you made before as a refresher?
Currently, no. I build them up and build them up, and when I get too many, I donate them, cutting it back to the essentials, then I start over again.Have you got way too many?
No, not right now.Any duds you never look in now but keep them around anyway?

Those links are all about whether or not you want cookies on the sites.Does anyone use a book holder to keep the books open while they cook? I've been thinking of getting one so I can start using my cookbooks more (something like this or this one). My aunt gave me this, but it doesn't hold the books open. And some of my cookbooks are huge (600+ pages). Any recommendations?
