Recipe Addiction

Tuesday, August 03, 2010

I just realized that I have a Recipe Addiction! I see recipes on the web, on this site, on other sites that I really think I would like. So I print them... over and over and over again. Turns out, I never fix them. I order recipe books because I love them! I love to read them... look at the ingredients; oh and ah over all the pictures that is in there. I even get the magazines.. :Cooking Light, Taste of Home's Healthy Cooking. Guess how many recipes I have actually fixed??????? NONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Crazy. I looked in my desk drawer and I would imagine there are a couple hundered recipes I have printed, snack Ideas, food list. Am I crazy! I think I have good intentions, and I do, but never even taste all of the delectable ideas that people have taken time to put in print. So today I am making confessions. Obsesssions with recipes. With that in mind, Today I am going to make a commitment to take one recipe to the grocery store, buy the ingredients if I don't have them, and simply cook myself something different. Just wanted to know Am I the only one???????????

    I have stopped buying cookbooks but I still cut out recipes in newspapers and copy recipes from magazines I read while waiting at doctor's,salons,etc because I can't cut out. I have made a few especially ones found on Spark. I love to look at recipes on Spark and put in my cookbooks but really need to make more of these recipes. I hope your plan works.

    you're not alone. i am the same way. i LOVE reading the recipe books, and finding recipes online. subscribe to magazines. just like you. and very rarely - almost never - make any of those recipes.

good luck with your new commitment... let me know what happens.
and please share the recipe that you decided to fix.
