On the weekends, I usually find the cookbooks I want to write about for the coming week. This weekend, however, I became distracted by Anna Quindlen’s latest book, probably because it was about her thoughts of turning sixty, which I recently did myself. It’s not often that I will write about a non-cookbook on a cookbook blog, but I couldn’t resist this one.

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
