Recipe MeMe

From where do you obtain the recipes you prepare?

Mostly from cookbooks. I enjoy going to a restaurant and then trying to come home and recreate what I had. I find recipes from other people’s blogs as well as from websites. I also subscribe to Bon Appetit and have since I was in college(12 years now…yikes!)

How often do you cook a new recipe?

It depends. My husband is such a picky eater. I try to do new recipes if we are going over to someone’s house or if I go to Book Club.

Where do you store your favourite recipes?

My cookbooks are in a cabinet just for them. My magazines have yet to be organized and it is my big project for July. I also have a lot of recipes in a file on the computer.

How large is your recipe pile? Is it organized? If so, how?

My cookbooks are very organized and are arragned by baking, entertaining, everyday meals, fancy don’t make that often(like The French Laundry), fruits, veggies and other.

What is the oldest recipe in your “to try” pile?

Oh wow, I have no idea I have so many to try.

Are you ever going to make those recipes in your to try pile?

Eventually, yes.

Do you follow a recipe exactly or modify as you go?

I follow a recipe to the letter the first time I make it. Then from there it is fair game. In baking it is hard sometimes to mess with the fundamental ingredients but in cooking you can always mess around.

What is one new recipe that you’re scared to try?

I’ll try anything once.

Tag at least one new food blogger for this meme (“new” as in only blogging a few months).

Me…. I may have had this for a little while but I just only recently started taking it seriously….that and I don’t know anyone to list.
