Why Did I Create This Blog?

This blog is for those of you who have an addiction to Gastroporn.... Yes Gastroporn.  You know who you are. Those of you who drool over the mouth watering pictures in a cookbook. You can almost smell the flavors jumping off the page. You can image the meals sitting on your plates at your table, and your guests saying..." This is sooo amazing.

The catch is finding that cookbook that delivers the perfect dishes.  The last thing you want to do is travel around the city looking for obscure ingredients and spending your hard earned dollars and spending hours in the kitchen only to find that the recipes are duds.

So my goal is to test cookbook recipes to find great cookbooks that have been well tested and provide variety, great tasting recipes and last but not least, gives me an excuse to add more cookbooks to my already 400 cookbook collection.  I's a bit of an addiction.  So you're not alone.

Tomorrow I'll select my first pick of cookbooks.  Wish me luck... looking for some comfort food to get me through the winter.
