I love cook books. There is something about flicking through the pages, looking at the pictures, maybe reading the little description by the author, that is just lovely. However even though I have loads of lovely cookbooks, and tried and tested cookbooks that I would have used years ago, when it comes to looking for a new recipe to try, I tend to go online.

I suppose it is the fact that you can search a type of meal and be given a list of twenty options, with reviews and sometimes pictures of people having tried to make their own version from the recipe, and you get to choose which you want to try. The problem of course is that there is too much choice and no quality control necessarily. Sure I’m not a chef or experienced food blogger or anything and yet I have posted recipes on here that I have tried. I know that I have made some recipes from blogs and I have not been impressed at all – but I have also found some absolutely delicious recipes too!

Just this week I wanted to find a recipe that I had made for a lentil curry a few years back and I remember it was quite nice. I had actually posted it on here (along with my complete failure of using split peas instead of lentils, duh!) and so then I was able to find the post and the link to the original recipe and make it again.

It is amazing to have such a wealth of different selections and experiences of recipes at our fingertips online, and I am really grateful for that!
