I wanted to come back with something exciting, and I have something that I think is super duper awesome. have you guys heard of Eat Your Books? I'm completely in love with what they're doing. It's the perfect resource for cookbook hoarding organization loving people like myself.

What you do is add all your cookbooks to your "bookshelf" on their site. The recipes in the cookbooks (and magazines and some blogs) are indexed. So what this means is that you can search through your books for recipes that use specific ingredients. (You can also filter your search for things like course and ethnicity.) Meal planning simplified!

So many times I spend hours looking through my books for a recipe that uses a particular ingredient. Well now I can just search on Eat Your Books! Another cool thing is that it gets you using cookbooks you tend to forget about.

SO what I have for you guys is a giveaway for a free lifetime membership to Eat Your Books!!! How great is that. The membership is usually $25/year, which isn't that much. But FREE and LIFETIME?? Super exciting.

This website has always intrigued me, but I'm perhaps I'm overly sentimental and (pre)nostalgic at the thought that I won't have well loved, stained cookbooks to pass on to my children if I switch over to browsing digitally! Would you say you still use all of your cookbooks? And that this website is worthwhile just for the ability to index through magazines (lawd knows that the price of subscriptions add up quickly)?

Also, please send me those decadent looking chocolate cupcakes. I would like to go swimming in the frosting!

I've been needing something like this for a long time. Thanks for sharing! My (current) favorite cookbook is Super Natural Every Day.

Michelle C. said...

I think my favorite cookbook is probably Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa Family Style. I love all her books, but so many of my make-again recipes are from that one.

Meryl said...

My favorite is Alice Medrich's "Bittersweet."

Johanna GGG said...

yes please put me down for the giveaway - I have been wondering about joining Eat Your Books so would love a free subscription - my main qualms were that they don't have many blogs (I love that they include blogs but wish there were more) and wonder how many of my cookbooks they have - guess I need to sigh up and try

MamaStephF said...

I love this idea. I'm going to check out their website.

My favorite cookbook...it's hard to say. There are so many great ones! I love Julia Child's Mastering The Art of French Cooking; it was my grandfather's cookbook, and I love the notes he wrote in it. He's gone now, so it's very special to me.

What a great idea! I just checked out their website an added Eat Your Books on facebook.

I think I'd have to say my favorite cook book is Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison. I've never had a flop from this book and it is a pretty diverse cookbook with great descriptions.

Nellie said...

I like the "Best of" cookbook from the folks who produce Cooks Illustrated. Everything turns out well. Moosewood is a close second.

Yay, you're back! I've never heard of this website but I'm super intrigued, I'm constantly looking through the index of my books when I'm trying to use an ingredient.
My favorite book is Eat, Drink and Be Vegan, I love lots of books but this one I keep coming back too.
