I also have a large collection of clipped recipes from magazines and printed recipes from websites that I have organized into binders (finally). And also a magazine holder that is collapsing under the weight of all the "special issue" magazines I've picked up that I want to keep intact and not rip apart.
All this said, I clearly have a lot to work with. The idea of this blog is to chronicle my cooking adventures as I work my way through my vast collection of recipes. I won't be posting the actual recipes since that would violate copyright. However, if a recipe can also be found online, I will share the link. (For example, a recipe from The Bon Appetit Cookbook might also be found on bonappetit.com. If that is the case, I will post the link to that recipe). If not, I will simply give my review of the recipe, any thoughts I have on that particular cookbook, and whether or not I recommend it.
I'm ready to dust off my bookshelves, crack open those gorgeous volumes of culinary temptations and get in the kitchen. Here's to home cooking!
