Got A New Cookbook!

A week ago hubby got me another cookbook. Oh boy, it's too heavy! This is the heaviest cookbook I've ever had. It's 5.8 lbs and has 797 pages. Thanks again hon! From pasta and pizza dough recipes, lasagna, appetizers, soups, you name it, its in here! It is organized by food genre and a full alphabetized index in the back.
I don't buy cookbook that much. I love the internet because I can just pop in a type of recipe I want, but sometimes it is not a satisfying experience for me. When I enter the dish I want to make comes up with dozens of directories to hundreds of recipes. Moreover once I find a recipe I want to use, I have the choice of printing it out and wasting paper or carting my laptop into the kitchen which doesn't really have a safe space for it to rest while I follow it.

How about you? Which one do you prefer, a cookbook or an e-cookbook?

I prefer cookbook sis :) Meron ako mga magazines. Kaso hindi pa rin ako nakakapagluto ng masyado :P

I also search the internet for recipes because I can choose from a great variety of recipes with ingredients readily available here in the Phils. But I'd love to have that great book too.

That was a pretty heavy book. I am fond of downloading ebooks, so I guess you would know my answer.

I have more than five cookbooks and a big box full of recipes from my mother in law. Gosh even I have the cookbook but still its hard for me to have a very tasty outcome. Talagang ang pagluluto is not my line of duty..toink but in fairness I love to eat..
