Whenever I decide to venture into the unknown and attempt to cook something, the process immediately gets off on the wrong foot; and it's because I never have anywhere to put the cook book!  I can never dedicate counter space to just the cookbook and nothing else; I'm too scatterbrained for that.  Luckily, I've just found a way to be my normal disorganized self, and still have a spot for the cookbook!

Now just be aware: I haven't tried this one yet.  But it seems like it would work really well, as long as the cookbook isn't too thick or heavy.  What do you think?
