Why am I doing another blog?

Now, that's an excellent question. Guess I was inspired by Julie and Julia and the fact I got three cookbooks for Christmas. No, I'm not going to cook every dish in those volumes--but I might find some that look promising and post them here. I'm hoping to share recipes from friends, and perhaps some inspired by characters in my books. Now, that will be fun and interesting!

So if you enjoy cooking, eating, or simply perusing recipes, stop by. I plan on posting a new recipe once a week, maybe more often. Depends on how hungry I am.
