There was a recent request for snickerdoodles. I've baked dozens of varieties of cookies in my lifetime, but never these. A bit of googling and I decided on this recipe from the kitchn. It was easy and my cookie testers gave it an enthusiastic YUM!
So here's the thing... I have a wonderful library of cookbooks. I inherited my mother's passion for collecting them. But I've stopped using them for cooking and baking. I still pour through them for inspiration, but I find that 95% of the time I use my iPad and do a search for what I'm looking for. I read comments and reviews and then pick the recipe that appeals to me most. I am not complaining, merely reflecting on how cooking has changed with technology. In talking to my friends (and my mom the cookbook queen), I've discovered that I'm not alone... many of us are doing this. How about you? I'm curious- do you google recipes and ingredients... or do you prefer leafing through pages?
