Well, I finally did it! I took the plunge and decided to start a food blog. I’ve been considering the idea for several years. The reason for my blog is a simple one. A few nights ago, I was sitting at the kitchen table at dinner and I looked over at my overflowing cookbook shelf and realized that I will never in my lifetime be able to cook every recipe in every cookbook on my embarrassingly, humongous cookbook collection. The word “humongous” is a great word to describe my collection because I’m sure I have well over 1,000 cookbooks. I’ve been cooking and collecting cookbooks for years. I accumulate them in many ways: I buy them at resale shops, at church bazaars, on family vacations, and they are given to me by friends and family for birthday or Christmas presents. Yes, I have more cookbooks than any one person should have. It’s totally outrageous! So, with my collection staring me in the face every time I enter the kitchen, I find myself provoked to make at least one recipe out of each cookbook. So, today I begin this venture and although I’m writing this blog for my own personal account, I hope that others will read it as well and find it perhaps interesting or helpful. If you are out there reading my blog, your comments are welcome and I’d love to hear from you. So let the cooking begin…..
