Cookbooks are a great way to encourage yourself to cook at home, as there is always something new to try. So addicted or not, we hope challenger AnskySue continues her love of cookbooks.
Alright, I admit it – tell me the twelve steps to cure myself. I am a cookbookaholic. I love them – can’t get enough of them. It’s where I inevitably end up in the bookstore and trust me, I’m just not that good of a cook but I am addicted to cookbooks. Maybe my subconscious is telling me to just keep trying and maybe someday it will become second nature. Today, my son’s request (after basketball camp) was to go to the bookstore. He wanted a Club Penguin book. Of course, I said yes but only so I could see if Chef Devin’s new cookbook was there. A friend has one of the Biggest Loser cookbooks and she loves it.
The book was there and I bought it (along with 2 Club Penguin books for my son). The clincher was the hardboiled egg recipe – I call my sister EVERY time I make hardboiled eggs because I can never remember how long to cook them, whether to boil the water first, etc (I told you I was a bad cook!). She finally bought me a hardboiled egg timer with directions on it for Christmas a year or two ago. LOL – I knew when I saw the egg recipe, that this was the book for me!
I have spent a good part of the afternoon flipping through it to see what recipes will be first and I’ve seen several I can’t wait to make (after a trip to the store). Tonight’s dinner was the first night since the new mini challenge with nothing green. It was just my son and me so he had leftovers and I had wheat toast with almond butter. Back to the book … have a great day!
