I have a lot of cookbooks. Like seriously a lot. They’re like grown up picture books where the pictures are all of food. Who wouldn’t like that, right? Typically when I get a new cookbook, I spend a while looking through it, drooling over the pictures and reading the recipes. I may make one or two of the recipes and then I typically won’t cook anything from it again.

I made some hot tea, put a cardigan on, and sat outside on the patio with the dogs. It was pretty awesome, at least until the sun started blaring in my eyes and warming everything up. Continue reading
