This weekend is the annual International Home and Housewares Show at McCormick Place in Chicago. My daughter Kristina and I look forward to this fabulous show every year. We find all the latest trends in cooking, appliances, and everything you would ever want in home products, in addition to watching all the celebrity chefs at the huge kitchen theater. In addition, we are so excited to be having exclusive dinners with some of the top manufacturers, and even dinner one evening with celebrity chef Michael Symon of ABC’s “The Chew.” I’ll report back next week on all our new finds and maybe even a recipe or two from the chef. See you next week!
Why I Started This Blog
I love cookbooks. I mean I really love them. I love to read them, treasure them, learn from them, and, of course, cook from them. To me, cookbooks take on a life all of their own. They are history, family, and memories. I have been collecting cookbooks and writing down treasured recipes of family, friends, and neighbors since about age twelve, which means I now own thousands of cookbooks, recipes, and clippings. Now I want to share them with you along with the many other culinary treasures of my cellar." - Debbie Vanni
