You know you have a problem when you don’t let your spouse know about what you bought. I love cookbooks. In fact my shelves runneth over. I have vintage books, handmade books and everything in between. I love the Taste of home cookbooks and magazines. My other big favorite is the Gooseberry Patch cookbooks.
Someone once asked my husband if I did a lot of cooking. His classic comment was, “Not so you’d notice.”
I love looking through them and at times I’m inspired to even try one. Our JoAnn’s Fabric store sells Gooseberry Patch cookbooks. I was in the back at the pattern table browsing their selection. An elderly lady walked by and asked about the cookbook.
“Do you like cooking?”
“Sometimes, mostly I just like to eat.”
She laughed and shared a recipe she thought I would like.
Finally I fessed up, “I tend to read them more like novels instead of cooking with them.”
