Everyone knows I am a cookbook/recipe junkie. I offer no excuses, it's just who I am. There is probably no one on the face of the earth with more cookbooks and recipe binders than I have.
For months (well, okay years) my recipe collection had gotten out of hand. I am forever finding recipes on the internet, in magazines, or word of mouth from friends. I'll come home, stuff them here or there in a recipe binder or drawer or my Daytimer, even inside my car.
Yesterday I went to Office Max and bought a 2 inch binder to replace several of my smaller ones. I also bought index dividers and sheet protectors. I get a discount at Office Max because the University of Rochester uses them as a vendor so employees get University pricing on purchases. I've made a major dent in getting the recipes organized and easier to find. Then I ran out of sheet protectors so I need to make another trip for more.
To answer the question many of you are thinking. . . YES, I do use these recipes!!! Can't say that I've used every single one, but many of them. One of the ways that I deal with the harsh New York winters is to try new recipes. I am thrilled when I find a recipe that is a winner.
How about you? What are your passions?
