Wannabe foodie

A neighbor recently offered up a huge amount of cookbooks — first come, first serve — so my cookbook bookcase got some new additions. Hopefully I can find some inspiration within because I've been in a food rut this week. My little boys, like most kids, are a challenge to feed ... one could eat the same thing everyday without complaint and is suspicious of new foods while the other may like one thing Monday only to not like it Thursday. 

I am a wannabe foodie but in reality I'm the everyday PB&J chef, while Chris is our specialty chef. He likes to cook but doesn't get to cook often so when we have guests or a special occasion, he gets to play in the kitchen. For several years now we have not gone out for Valentine's Day. Instead, Chris cooks me a wonderful gourmet meal and I make him a decadent chocolate dessert. Win-win!

Favorite cookbooks

"Make it Fast, Cook it Slow" by Stephanie O'Dea, also writer of one of my favorite food sites*
"Hershey's Homemade," can't go wrong with chocolate
"Bell's Best" and "Bell's Best 2," this is where all of grandma's recipes end up
