The plastic covered pages are easy to wipe down when you spill or splash. The three ring binder aspect of the photo book makes it easy to remove pages from the book when you are ready to cook or rearrange pages. If a recipe sucks and you never want to make it again, you can just pull back the plastic, trash the recipe and replace with a new one. When you are all done cooking you can shelve your cook book with the rest of the REAL cook books.
I have visions of re-organizing mine so that it is put together like a real cook book. I don't want to have to dig for the recipe I'm looking for. For now though, my cook book like everything else in my life remains half-assed.
Help me out and link up to a great recipe that you have on your blog below.
