The demise of the book is certainly not in evidence in our house. We have a lot of literary biography and memoirs, classic novels, historical tomes. We don’t merely have books. we have a library. Which is less than ideal when you rent, not own, your house.

There are also towering stacks of cookbooks. My cookbook collection has been refined over the years from several hundred (okay, actually 400 to be exact) to about 80 currently. I absolutely love my cookbooks, and although I too, am guilty of Googling a recipe when I am in a rush, I will never give up the “type on paper” form for the electronic version.

With my New Year’s resolve of appreciation, I am intent on really exploring each book, and using my cookbooks rather than just admiring them. I think the best way to do that is to focus on one book per week and cooking exclusively from that volume.

I’ll bring you along on the journey. It’s going to be a yummy year.
