I have an entire book case full of old cookbooks and newspaper/magazine clippings...not to mention and entire folder of recipies on my computer. My husband LOVES to cook and experiment. He will often combine the best parts of several recipes and come up with a unique creation of his own.
The only problem is, he rarely touches the books. These days he will usually look through the computer files, and if he doesn't find what he wants, he will look for recipes online!
