Step one is admitting you have a problem, so here goes. Hi my name is Denise I am have a cookbook addiction. I can't own enough of the lovely recipe encyclopedias. My senses soak in the words and pictures as if they were works of art. Here’s the kicker though, I very rarely make a recipe as it is written by the author. It does happen from time to time, but not often. Reading cookbooks for me is like reading a mystery novel. "What is going to come next?" "He did what with cauliflower?" Every recipe gets logged in my brain and filed for later.
I love to cook by the seat of my pants. I see what I have in the pantry, fridge and freezer and start there. While I will still do this, I am going to attempt a new route. I am going to actually make recipes from my beautifully crafted, delicious books. I will let you know what book the recipe is from, if I change the recipe at all, or if I make it as it is written. Let’s get cooking!
