How often do you want to recreate a dish of mine you’ve cooked before, but can’t recall where it is on the website or which book it’s in? For that matter, how do you use all of the recipes inside all of the cookbooks and food magazines that I know you have on your bookshelves (I bet you currently don’t – most people only ever cook a handful of recipes out of any one cookbook)?
The answer is a very clever website called Eat Your Books which I discovered many years ago and use every week!
The EYB Team has indexed almost 2.5 million recipes in over 160,000 cookbooks so you can find the recipes you want when you want them. I love EYB and I want to share it with you so I’ve indexed all the recipes on this website and ensured all my cookbooks are indexed there too.
Here’s how it works: You create a virtual bookshelf on EYB, add the book titles and magazines that you own and then search by ingredient, cuisine, occasion, etc… and EYB shows you which recipes you have on hand that match your search. You then grab the book, or open up the magazine, and there’s the full recipe! You can add recipes from your favourite websites too (including this one) and click straight through.
To get you started, the girls at EYB and I would like to offer you a free 1-month Premium membership.
Let’s get started in 3 easy steps (email me if you have issues and I’ll talk you through it):
I’m going to ask one favour – PLEASE add ratings (5-star I hope) to any of my recipes you use – it helps other people find my website. And if you find an error anywhere or have an issue with a recipe – you know I want to know, so email me.
You can bookmark your favourite recipes, add notes (private or public) and even add your own recipes. You can also go into the Library section and search for all the books and food magazines you own and add them to your bookshelf.
In a month’s time when your free trial expires, you’ll be prompted to renew your membership – it’s USD$40/year and I highly recommend it. Once you have your books, magazines and favourite food websites loaded you’ll wonder how you ever did without Eat Your Books.
Thanks for cooking with me – I hope you love Eat Your Books as much as I do!
