Yes. Most of my recipes are now in (multiple) files on my computer, though.
I have so many... I won't live long enough to try them all! But I like to share them when I find others who would test them.
Favorite family recipes are in a card file also. I'm not so much a cookbook collector, although I do have a few. Most of my cooking books are technique books. Nice references!

I have all of it. Cookbooks, recipe files, internet folders...you name it, I have it. Most recently, though, to try to centralize everything (and keep myself from losing all of it), I have started typing the recipes into Word, which I then save on a flash drive that is solely for that purpose. I can have as many categories as I wish, I can very easily share a recipe with someone by either printing it, or emailing it within seconds.
For most of my other recipes, I have resorted to a photo box, since I use the 4x6 size recipe cards.
I've recently started using SP's "My Recipes" options on sparkrecipes.com, and I love it!

"Jesus answered, 'The most important [commandment] is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength'" (Mark 12:29-30).
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity" -Paulo Coelho Alchemist
I own a couple of cookbooks but I mostly have files.

A little of everything. I have a cardfile, I have a SP recipes collection where I save those favorites. I have a subscription to allrecipes.com. I buy books or magazines if I see a really good one. (Just bought a new magazine for healthy slow cooker recipes that has the family drooling). Also keep some pinterest pages where I save recipes I've found online that we've enjoyed.

All of the above in the past. Now I use SP recipe builder a lot. Or scan through the spark recipes. If it's something new that I am not sure how to cook the best way, I will google it. Almost all of my records are electronic now, though I still hang on to a few old cookbooks that came from my mom and grandmother. I have the Woman's Home Companion from the 1940's. It tells you how to pick out a good live chicken, and more.

h my gosh. I have every taste of home magazine for the past several years and so many more cookbooks, printed recipes, files. I should thin them out because I hardly ever use them. LOL

I use an app on my iPad called "the Recipe Box" and either enter my own recipes or export from websites, simple. I have over 575 recipes so far and yes I use the app all the time. The app works as well on my iPhone.
Both . Collecting cookbook is my hobbie. At one time I had 200 cookbooks. When my Grandson got engaged I let Rachael chose as many books as she wanted. Then my other Grandson got engaged and I did the same for Katie. I really don't have room for all my cookbooks so now I get my recipes on Cooks.com and file them.

Evernote. This way the recipes are always on my phone and I can get what I need at the grocery store b/c the recipe is right there.

Both - I love cookbooks but I also get a lot of recipes online that I print out - I have a drawer in my kitchen that is devoted to those recipes - not well organized, but my favorites are usually on top.

For the most part I follow food/recipe blogs so I have the files on a memory stick/flash drive or printed out and kept in a folder but I do have about 3 recipe books too. 1 book in particular I want to try make all the recipes in it for my bucket list :).
Call me Sandy. My goals are swimming in a 1 mile open water sea swim in 2016, performing 50 push-ups in 1 minute and losing 7 pounds
I do a little of both and I get recipes on line. I still have my recipe box I made in high school and I also collect recipe books I find interesting especially ones people do for fundraisers.

I do a little bit of both. If it's a recipe I see online, it's unlikely that I'll easily find it in a cookbook, but there are books that I really enjoy using. I have a notebook filled with recipes that I've collected through the years that I make for special occasions. All my holiday cookie recipes, and things I make for certain types of parties. It also has notes in it about substitutions and who likes what the best. It makes it easy for me to give food items as gifts.

I'll admit that I'm something of a cookbook junkie. I love buying cookbooks. So, yes, I still use cookbooks for reference.
Most times, I will do a search on google to see what turns up. I'm a big fan of epicurious.
Like many other people of a certain age, I was talk to use a recipe file too. I don't. never really like using files. My mom always used cookbooks OR recipes from the newspaper. Many of our cookbooks used newspaper recipes for bookmarks.
I have a collection of various coook books. For recipes I find in magazines or online, I have a 3 ring binder I put them. I use the clear sheet protectors, so when I want to make a certain recipe, I just remove it from the binder, in the sheet protector, that way it doesn't get stained or wet, on the counter, while preparing the meal.

When I was in high school home ec we had to keep recipe files. Today a lot of people buy recipe books. I tend to do a little of both. What do you do?
