No. The recipes are online. Why would i pay for another cookbook that collect dust on my shelf?

I would so buy a SP cookbook but I would not spend more then $20 on it. I am kind of cheap and broke most of the time. But I love cookbooks!

That is a chunk of money! About a week's worth of gas for me...

I probably would, but I sure hope it comes out in paperback. Some of the big-name-chefs' cookbooks are $35 or more. I really can't afford that.

I probably would buy a spark cookbook. I love cookbooks and hate reprinting out recipes that I like. I'm too messy of a cook to have my computer by me. The only thing I would like is if it had space to add your own faves since there are so many on the website. Accurate nutrition information would be helpful too.

Probably not because I can look up the recipes online by searching for what I want to make and getting many suggestions.

Well said, Calikiki! I would want all the nutrition info as well in my binder. Not just the summary info, bot the ingredients themselves so I could switch out ingredients that I might use instead of what someone else would choose.

I like the suggestion by Juneau2010. A binder would be good but I would want to make sure the recipes clearly spell out nutritional guidelines so people know serving sizes and information. That is very important to me.

I picture a cookbook that would lay flat when opened - maybe a binder so I could add recipes, create my own categories, put recipes in sheet protectors and have a section for suggestions/comments from the Community. Besides, the recipes would include the colorful illustrations and it would be a fantastic book!

Free is great, but I am not going to waste a lot of toner and paper printing recipes on my own. Ultimately, it would be cheaper to buy the book than to print (for me)

probably not when i can get them free from the site.

YES I've tried many of the recipes and would love a cookbook with more favorite recipe is Chef Meg's spinach salad, with strawberries and is so delicious and refreshing.I eat this one often...

No, at least when you get the recipes of off the website the food would be something that you want. With a cookbook there will be a lot of recipes that your not going to cook esp with picky eaters.

No, because I print them off of the site and put them in my binder in sheet protectors. This way I only have the ones I cook and I also print out the nutrition info for keeping DH on the right track with his diabetes. So I will buy more printer paper when I need more recipes.

I would love it if a SparkPeople cookbook came out! I use a recipe from the site at least once a week.

I like that idea - my on-line cookbook is not easy to use. But I'd probably buy a cookbook too!

I would! I'd like a cook book that contained SparkPeople's most highly rated recipes and also gave diet tips and education. Some of my friends cook and buy healthy cooking books and I would like to be able to give it as a gift. Maybe if enough people are interested, SparkPeople will have a new publication!
