I can't remember exactly when I started collecting cookbooks but I've been doing it for a number of years. I thought I'd share some pictures of my collection with you (I think I have more in boxes). I have a five shelf bookcase in my office and the first four shelves are full of cookbooks and cooking magazines. My collection is always growing. In fact on the way back from my recent trip to visit my parents I added four more books. I picked them up at a gas station that sells all sorts of things called Buc-ee's. It's a Texas thing. If you ever come across one definitely stop on in. It is a neat place. I'll definitely visit them again because there were other books I wanted but I didn't want to break the bank.
Anywho, I don't know if most people are like me but I have not made one thing out of about 99% of the cookbooks I own. It's sad but true. Some of the books still have plastic on them. Lol!
My blog is still very new and I'm brainstorming ideas on what direction I'd like to go with it. One of the thoughts I've had is to start trying recipes from my cookbooks and if I come across ones that I just love I will share them with you.
I'm trying to find my niche and I hope that you will bear with me as I figure things out. I'm also thinking of doing some tutorials on how I decorate cookies, cupcakes and cakes. I may even try video tutorials but don't hold me to it because I just can't stand how I sound on video. It's just strange to listen to yourself talking on a video. I would like to try it though because I have had friends say they'd like to watch me decorate. This would be a way that they could see what I do as well as others.
I'm open to suggestions. If you have a request for something you'd like to see contact me and let me know. I'll do my best to see if it's something I can do.
