These are some of the recipes I often use. It’s mostly for my own reference. You (and I) can easily find these and various variations online, but extracting only the essential information for a cooking recipe from a website is virtually impossible. Outside of the first time I encounter a recipe, I do not care about the dish’s origin, its history, every conceivable place to eat it, the various products being sold by the website’s authors, etc. Also, the number of autoplay videos on cooking recipes – even with ad blockers – is shocking.

Cook books are great, but storing recipes here is more efficient than using physical books and having to constantly add to them. I started adding to this list in 2023 so it’s fairly incomplete but I’ll add more over time.
