Join Me in My Addiction!

Thank you for visiting my blog...and for allowing me to share with you my addiction. I love to collect recipes. I love to read cookbooks. I have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember, and on any given day there are one or two (or more!) cookbooks residing on my nightstand!

This blog is chronicling my adventure as I fulfill my resolution of trying (at least) one new recipe each week. I hope that you enjoy!

I invite you to join me in my journey, simply by clicking the "Join this Site" link below. And please feel free to comment on any of the recipes, and pin away. Thanks, I look forward to sharing with you!

Why Am I Here?

Don't worry, that's not some philosophical question about my existence...but really, why am I here doing this?  I have all sorts of things I COULD be doing, you know, fun stuff for a Friday night like laundry!  Instead, a Facebook post by a friend inspired me to think and act...and here I am.  She put out a call for a blogger about food, and I got to thinking:

1) I grew up loving to bake.
2) I have always always ALWAYS collected recipes.  I love to read and clip recipes.  I can spend hours browsing my cookbooks. Seriously, I can get lost in a good cookbook! 
3) I have grown to really enjoy cooking. My husband claims that he doesn't share the same sweet tooth that I have, but he does have a healthy, adventurous appetite which in turn has fed my love of reading, collecting and trying recipes.
4) One of my few New Years Resolutions for 2012 is to try a new recipe each week.  And now that resolution has grown to include "and blog about it".

After all these thoughts (and more...I just didn't list them all), I figured, hey, why don't I do this!?  And so this blog has been feed my love of recipes, to help us try new things, and to meet my goal of trying something new each week.  I look forward to telling you all about it!
