How Eat Your Books helps me to actually use all my recipe books
I'm not sure if you know this, but I am obsessed with recipe books.
Oh, okay, you do know that do you?
I get asked quite a lot how many I have, and you'd expect someone like me to umm and ahh and not be sure of the number.
But no, I know it. It's 98.
And how do I know it's 98?
It's thanks to the wonder that is Eat Your Books.
(I want to make it clear here this is not sponsored - I really love Eat Your Books and have been paying myself for my membership for many years!)
What is Eat Your Books?
Eat Your Books is a website which allows you to organise and search through your recipe books.
I originally stumbled across it a few years ago because, well, I'm obsessed with recipe books. And sometimes I like to look up recipe books to see what recipes they have before I buy them. Or what reviews they have. Or sometimes I find myself in the supermarket googling what I'm planning to make for dinner to see if the recipe is online because I've forgotten if I need courgettes or not.
And Eat Your Books would always come up. And to be honest, for years I didn't get it.
You couldn't see the quantities of each ingredient, or the recipe itself. Just the ingredients it needed, and sometimes some reviews. I couldn't see how it would be useful.
But after coming across it over and over again, I decided to give a free trial a go. And I completely fell in love.
