It’s funny – when I decided to re-focus this blog on my passions of food and social media, I didn’t realize at the time how often the two would intersect…
I am a recipe fanatic. I know that is not the sign of a true chef, but alas, I am not a true chef; just a homecook who loves trying out new recipes, making delicious food for my family and entertaining. My kitchen (and house) is overrun with food magazines and various clippings of recipes that I’d like to try one day or have tried and liked. Frankly, it’s getting a bit crazy; my cookbook cabinet is jammed to the hilt and I literally have plastic storage bins full of food magazines. As a result, it’s impossible for me to actually find anything (and the clutter is making Hubby looney). My sister gave me the Williams Sonoma Recipe and Entertaining Journal a few Christmases ago; I love it. Buuut, my penchant for recipe collecting has grown beyond what the journal can hold.
My second issue is that when I’m actually cooking in the kitchen, I have to find a place to prop up my recipe. This is a challenge as I don’t have the most counter space in the world and usually don’t have an inch to spare. Then there’s the chance of my spilling something on the page, or having to flip through multiple pages with soiled hands – you get the picture. I’ve taken to clipping my pages with a fridge magnet and attaching that to the hood of the stovetop. It works fine, but this technology addict has been dreaming about being able to access my recipes on something like this:
The litl webbook
The qooq recipe tablet
Santa, are you listening?
