I still love a good cookbook. I stopped buying them as often purely due to room and because I find myself finding ideas and recipes at my fingertips online.
For years and years I cooked many meals for the family. I certainly had a repertoire depending on the season and at least a few times a month I got creative. Trying out recipes from around the globe.
These days I cook less but probably enjoy the act of making a meal now more than ever. Aimlessly cooking all afternoon is one of my favorite activities. The return of flipping through amazing cookbooks seems to have returned too.
I have become more calculated in the decision to buy a cookbook so I have upped the game.
