Hi Julie and welcome to EYB. Yes t would be wonderful if publishers pitched in, since we are doing a great service to the publishing industry. Many of them (though not all) do supply us with review copies of their books to index. We are also trying to get them to publicize EYB more through their own sites e.g. by linking to the recipe listings on EYB.
My name's Ducky, and I'm a mid-twenty-something Chicago bibliophile with a penchant for moving around frequently. I love food, I love cooking and perfecting techniques while developing my skills, and I'm the sort who uses food as a way to show affection. You can imagine that this love for food - and my seeming incapacity to stay in one location for very long - has made myself and my friends both strong and cranky on moving day! I cull my belongings before every move, but the two groups that I rarely mess with are my cookbooks and my kitchen wares. I only have about 50 cookbooks (and I've cooked out of every single one, yaaaaaay!), but my Amazon wishlist has 500+ titles and I have a RSS feed that is cumbersome when I don't read it every day.
Anyways, this site is awesome and I appreciate ALL OF YOU (especially those who are indexing). Just used the Shopping List feature + actually searching for recipes to menu plan and both are AWESOME and extremely effective. =D
