I don’t know about you, but I get super lazy when it comes to buying and reading cookbooks. Spoon’s series of video recipes are not only addicting to watch, but they speed up the process by allowing you to see the entire cooking process in under 2 minutes.

In our technology-driven society, it’s no wonder that traditional cookbooks and paper recipes will be retired and replaced with digital recipes. In addition to their visual appeal, these video recipes are so helpful because they can help you gauge what a recipe should look like at each step.

I’ve gathered what I think are the best of the Spoon recipe videos. Put down your cookbook, whip out your computer and start cooking.
