Recipe heaven!

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?


  1. Organization! Yes! You are GOOD! Well, I do try, but I have so much more to do. :)

    Passions? Mine have to include yarn and all the stuff that comes with it. I have a whole room full of it and sometimes enjoy just going in there and moving it around to organize it and get ideas. I can stand there and hold yarn and dream up what I want to make with it. Yep, I think that's a passion all right! ;)

  2. Oh, I do not know where to begin with the passions...I love photography and quilting...which of course includes fabric and sewing machines...I love fishing, though I don't do as much of that as I used to...and I love to read...heck, even love the internet...cannot imagine life without it. I love reading...just got a kindle in first I had thought I would not want one, and for years stuck to that...then got to thinking about how wonderful to be able to carry a bunch of books with me so easily...

    I am rambling...but you get the idea!
