My skills in the kitchen tend to fluctuate from the very elementary to the occasionally sophisticated (case in point: a beautiful soufflé that shall never be reproduced). What makes the biggest difference for me is having instructions, and not everything I want to make is in the Joy of Cooking.
I get most of my recipe ideas from food blogs like YumSugar, and my best solution for using a recipe I found online was printing it out and getting it covered with ingredients in my messy kitchen, or keeping my laptop somewhere safe and traveling to it for the next step. But when I saw this Kitchn reader's solution, a mounted computer that the reader's husband scored on the cheap, I swooned. And wish I'd thought of it first.
Imagine, having all the recipes you've saved on the Internet in one place — right where you need it.
