I have a confession to make. I love cookbooks. New, old it doesn't matter. I do prefer the ones with all the pretty pictures but look at the others too. I probably own no less than 100 cookbooks.
I use to purchase cookbooks for one or two recipes that looked good. Now, I borrow cookbooks from the library for 6 weeks at a time. If Jessica and I use it a lot and love the recipes, I will purchase a copy for our home collection. If we don't like it then we have saved ourselves $15 to $25.
The library is one of the best sources I know of for trying new cookbooks. This really works well to keep my home library under control.
Have you ever bought a cookbook and wished you hadn't? Now, try before you buy. It works for me.
