Cooking From Past COTM's. Do you?

Breadcrumbs | Feb 25, 201511:14 AM

Do you still cook from books that were past COTMs and if so, do you post about your experience on the old threads?

Here's why I ask:

A discussion on another thread caused me to look back at a past COTM as I didn't realize that book had been covered previously and I wanted to ensure I selected "Following" so I'd receive any updates on those threads.

After I did this I thought I should take a look at the COTM Archive and ensure I was "Following" threads for all other books I own.

I'm only part way through this process now but I noticed that a number of the threads hadn't been updated in years. This made me wonder if it was because folks weren't cooking from the books any more or, whether they were cooking and just not posting.

I know I try to post on past threads if I remember and I think now I've ensured I'm "Following" them I'll be more likely to remember to do so. I've also created a COTM bookmark in EYB so I know which books were past COTMs so if I'm reviewing a recipe there, I'll know to add it here.

I'll be curious to hear from others on this. Of course as I was doing this I was also seeing names of Hounds I don't know and that always makes me wonder what happened to those passionate cooks? Are they still cooking but just not posting here?

ETA: I should have added a link to the Archive of past COTM's. Here it is:
