Does anybody collect cook books? If so how many do you have? I have about 30 books plus 10 folders of recipes that I printed from the internet or cut from magazines. I'm always amazed at how recipes have changed and how our thoughts on healthy food have changed. Sometimes I like to try older recipes, just for fun!!

I get most of my recipes off the internet. I have about 10 cookbooks and use them sporadically. All of them were either gifts or purchased used. I occasionally check cookbooks out of the library too.

Hi, I love cooking. Cooking is an art. I enjoy it because it releases all my stress. Actually my wife has a collection of great recipes. she usually collects all good recipes from weekly magazines that we get here with our newspapers. The recipes are really good and she has lots of them. They are with pictures of the dish. We haven't got enought time to give it a try. Also, I have a recipe book from the Indian Master Chef 'Sanjeev Kapoor'. He is really a genius in this. Indeed a great collection I must say.

I have quite a collection of cookbooks and recipes too. I love to get them out and look at them and I will occasionally try a new recipe. I am trying some new chicken tonight as I am not sure if we will like it and if not, we can go grab some McDonalds or something.

I collect cookbooks. My husband laughs because I really don't cook that often. It's like um.... reading material to me I guess. I'm always looking for that elusive recipe that everyone loves, lol.

I'm with you...I must have at least 30 and many store on my computer,lol. I love ready cookbooks. I have a few from my mother-in-law and mother when they first got married. I always ask for cookbooks as a christmas gift. And your right the style and ingredients have changed so much in tha last 50 years it's neat to have a record of that.
