Have not! Cooked anything from this cookbook of yet, but just want to bring forward the thanks of having a great binding (as I know so far). Lay flat (or at least ast staying on the page) without any binding conditioning! Would be nice as a spiral bound, but the binding is very good to lay flat (or staying on that page) which is a must-have for a good cookbook.–S. Johson
