Because I am in decluttering mode, less is more is my motto. This applies to cookbooks and recipes. I decluttered my cookbooks giving some away to friends and charities. I had too many. Some never even opened. There are some you just don't like. I threw away many recipes I had printed out. It's been a terrible habit. I'm trying hard not to print so much. It's overwhelming and it kills trees! Instead, I already have a set of tried and true recipes that I can make over and over. What you see above are all the cookbooks I now own. I will occasionally throw in a new one. The result: I have less cookbooks, less clutter, more order and more calm!
