I don't understand the cookbook thing either. As a kid, I can remember that my grandma had three or four cookbooks and a drawer full of recipes she'd clipped from the newspaper. My mom had maybe a dozen cookbooks at the most. I think I have less than a dozen, but I regularly use each of them. I have my own cookbook that I use for my once a month cooking plan. I use my cookbooks mostly for references on procedures. If I could only keep two cookbooks, I'd keep the one that has my grandma's recipes and Julia Child's The Way to Cook.

I think they're kind of a fantasy for some people. You flip through the pages and dream about all of the wonderful things you can make. It's similar to the addiction to craft books that some people have.

AstridS, not cookbook dependent
