On Saturday morning I woke up to snowflakes falling and I knew it would be the perfect day to make a recipe I had been wanting to make for awhile...homemade Macaroni and Cheese. I pulled out a cookbook I have never used How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman.
After I read through the recipe I pulled on my winter boots and ventured out into the snow and drove to the grocery store to purchase the necessary ingredients Milk, Bay Leaves, Pasta, Butter, Sharp Cheddar, Parmesan and Bread Crumbs.
I loved how this turned out. It was the perfect day to make this and it tasted great as I ate it while watching it snow!
I loved this book. It is staying in the cookbook collection and I think I might buy another Mark Bittman cookbook. This cookbook has recipes for everything from Salmon to Caramelized Apple Tart.

It was fantastic. It was filled with polenta, ricotta, spinach and mozzarella cheese.....how could that not be great?

I am coming forth to admit an addiction....
During the hoilday break I pulled out all of my cookbooks and realized I might have a problem. I have over 100 cookbooks which might not be so many for someone who actually cooks but I don't really cook so why do I have so many cookbooks? I sorted though the books and kept only the ones that I really liked and donated the rest.
I have 88 books left in my collection and I have made the goal to cook something out of each book this year. After I have made the recipe and spent some time looking through the book I will decide if I want to keep the book in my collection or donate it.
