recipes and pictures

There was a discussion a few years back on the pressure cooker group on Yahoo! about pictures with recipes. To some folks it really makes a difference. To others it’s not so important.

GardenChickenAlfredoFor me, I like to have pictures with my recipes. If I’m adding a recipe to my database from a place like (where the recipes from most of the Time-Life mags live: Cooking Light, Sunset, Coastal Living, etc.) I make sure to download and include the picture. If the recipe is from a print publication and is not available online, I scan both the recipe and the photo if there is one.

Somehow my presentation is never like what is portrayed in the picture. Still, the photo helps to give me a sense of what I should be trying to get to.
