What's your excuse for not having a family recipe book?
You too edgy and internet tough guy to have one?
Or is it that you just can't cook and are too shameful to admit it?

Everyone should have one of these.

I might end up having to help my mom redo her recipe book, have been starting to work on my own but it's in digital form for now until I have enough of them to justify starting on a physical book of my own.

Many of my grandmother's recipes don't work with modern ingredients. The chicken is nowhere near the same as what she got, nor is the pork or bacon. The dairy products are a little different. Even the vegetables aren't quite the same. I can't just go to the supermarket and get the same ingredients grandma used to get. So her recipes generally do not apply.

My family cooks everything by eye and it's all passed down orally or by demonstration

I downloaded some of the thedens cookery book recipes that an anon posted in /ck/ but most of them were entry level pants postwar cooking.

Reading my grandmother's recipe book is like reading the journal of a mad scientist. Some times entire recipes are scratched out, substitutions are written in, and she seemed to have a habit of writing notes in the margins as if she were having an actual conversation with the person who had written the instructions.

One specific example involved a note in the margins of a recipe for frosting that asked for white food coloring. Grandmother was not amused.

My mom has ours, mostly in the form of index cards. She won't give me the most valuable one, salteƱas

For my birthday my dad made me a 'custom cookery DVD' which was just a video of him filming me cooking while narrating over it in a really offensive and unfunny way. I cant' really show any of the video (because it has me in) but this is the dvd cover and blurb. I fucking hate my family and would never cook for them. (the 'picture' on the left is of me in the kitchen so I have blocked it out)

that's a pretty shit thing for him to do, but i still laughed my ass off
>>
>>7179494
It's the thought that counts. I would love a video like this. I think it's cool m8. Lighten up and laugh at yourself. Your dad wouldn't have gone through the trouble if he didn't love you.
>>
>>7179494
Thats fucked up bro. I didnt even laugh. I would probably have killed myself if i were you

I sympathize with being an unwanted tumor on your family's backside hurtling towards 25 as well as the struggle of wanting to cook something late at night but that is fucking hilarious.
You'd probably improve your relationship if you actually did cook for them once in a while instead of just using up all their ingredients while they don't benefit from it.

>chicken fried in your nighty

well HA!
>>
>>7179494
Holy shit. If this is real, end yourself immediately mate.
>>
my senpai can't cook
>>
>>7178587
My family didn't write one. Cooking is organic, as times change tastes change so recipes change.
>>
The traditional recipes are passed down by teaching. These days my mother keeps a notebook for soups and pastries. Those notes are ingredient lists and cooking times, without any instructions. There are no recipes for the usual stuff.
>>
>>7179494
fake and gay

I digitised my mum's cookbook and turned it into a whole hand-bound affair about a year and a half ago. Best gift I've ever given.
>>
>>7179494
This is abuse.


And bad design, it's hard to read the text.

I also think he's telling you to stop wasting the resources and being loud when everyone's asleep and not doing the dishes when you're done.

Upload the narration to vocaroo or something.

Since this didn't happen to me and I'm not a socially inept retard that has the ability to provide for myself since the age of 16, this is fucking hilarious.

In the event this is real and you're really this butthurt about it just slit your wrists in the bathroom some time when you have the house alone or blow your head off with a shotgun. Make sure you leave a note saying "Thanks for the DVD Dad". That's your best revenge short of actually making something of yourself and telling your Dad that you hate him, a swift kick to the balls and cutting off all relations.
