cook books v. the internets

Do you use cook books to find recipes or the internets? I kind of go both ways. We have quite a few cook books now and I enjoy reading them. I have a friend who collects them. She does not cook though.

However, when I am looking for a specific recipe I tend to go to the internets. Grammy used to make a wonderful strawberry bread, and I thought I had the recipe, but I could not find it.

I found this one online:

Fresh Strawberry Bread

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cups strawberries, rinse, dried and chopped

1. Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
2. With electric mixer cream butter, sugar and cream cheese until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Mix in vanilla.
3. In separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Blend flour mixture with butter mixture just until blended. Add buttermilk and only stir until just combined; do not over mix.
4. Carefully fold in strawberries. Dough mixture will be thick.
5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes.

I will let you know how it works out!

I get annoyed now when I realize that a recipe that I want to make is in one of my cookbooks and not on my iPad.
