Eat Your Books

I have just started to use Eat Your Books. I think the website is a great idea and think it will get better once more people take the time to enter some comments about the recipes. The one reason I use the online recipe collections is that the comments and ratings are helpful, something you don't usually get with your cookbooks.

Is anybody else using the site? Adding comments about recipes or cookbooks?

    If you read through the Cookbook of the Month (COTM) archive threads you will find hundreds of comments on recipes as they were made during a book's tenure as COTM. Most of these books, if not all, are indexed on EYB. Here's the archive link:

    I use EYB daily looking for recipes incorporating a particular ingredient I have or "need to use up." Don't think I've commented on a recipe though...

      There are a ton of people on CH, myself included, using eatyourbooks. If you search on these boards, you will find many threads. However, though I use the site, I have never commented on any of the recipes...

        I searched and found a bunch of mentions but no threads that were specifically about EYB and commenting on recipes.

          Yes, there are many threads about EYB. but none commenting on recipes as far as I know. I think most people on CH comment on recipes on this site rather than EYB, but I could be mistaken...
