We tend to cook three meals a day in our kitchen, so our cookbooks got a lot of use. My Joy of Cooking is looking a lot like my mom's, broken binding and sugared pages. But they were getting a little overwhelming lately, normally piled on top of the fridge looking as if they might fall at any moment. So this is my little fix up. I like that we can still access our books when needed but the clean space above the fridge makes me calm.
