Hi everyone! We have a blizzard here in Chicago, and it just dawned on me that we could lose power at any time and I might not be able to write my blogs. I am going to go work on them soon, but if you don’t see new blogs for a day or two, you will know why! To everyone who is also in this storm, stay warm and safe, and go into the kitchen and bake something!
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
