About the Blog

Hi, I'm Melissa and I love cookbooks. Buying them, reading them, swooning over the photos, and daydreaming about the food. And yet the majority of the books in my ever-growing collection (145 at last count) have never actually been used for their main purpose - learning how to make new and delicious recipes. I'm always flipping through the glossy pages thinking "If I could only cook!"

With this blog my goal is to cook one recipe from each book over the course of a year...or maybe two. (I did say my collection was ever-growing!) I hope you'll come along with me on this culinary journey.
