    A lot of them recycle the same back of the box recipes. Once in a while you will see something that is unique. A friend sent me her church's new cookbook a couple of months ago. I had high hopes as there were a lot of ethnic names in the contributor list - but nearly all the recipes are familiar and some are nearly identical to each other, which is a disappointment.

    I'm not sure this was always true. For years my sister made a point of picking up locally produced cookbooks while she and her husband traveled across the country and I think she had found a number of really interesting recipes. But now with newspapers owned by a few chains and internet and all, there is more uniformity.

    I feel the same about retail stores. It used to be I'd go on a business trip and find something unique and interesting, but now it's all the same stores. And I hate that I go to Europe or the Caribbean and see all the same fast food joints. I did not travel thousands of miles to eat at Denny's! (Except I always go to McDonald's in Frankfurt Airport - free wi-fi!)
