My Recipe Book

I will admit it – I have an addiction to cookbooks.  It drives my husband crazy that I read cookbooks, but I look at it as proof that I am a grown-up.  I mean, what kid reads cookbooks?

Anyways, because I really can’t afford cookbooks and don’t have much room in my kitchen, I tend to rent cookbooks from the library.  My library has an amazing collection of cookbooks that range all across the board; from alcohols, canning, preserving, to ethnic based foods, to crock-pot and baking specific cookbooks and everything in between. 

If I find a recipe I like and want to try, I write it down in a note book or copy it.  I am a slow writer but I am a whiz on the keyboard, which brings me to the creation of My Recipe Book!  In here you will find links to recipes I want to try, some of my favorites, and even some that I’ve tried but didn’t find all that appealing (hey they may rub someone else the right way).  Hope you can use this as a source as well!
