I love to collect cookbooks. I especially like to find old cookbooks at thrift stores and garage sales. Some of the best recipes I've tried are from the little cookbooks you can buy by the checkstand at the grocery store. As most cooks have, I've been collecting recipes from newspapers, magazines, friends, etc. for the past 25 years. I'm currently in the process of organizing them into binders (not a small task). It's great seeing again what I've collected and finding recipes I haven't tried in years, discovering how my tastes have changed, or finding those that I wanted to try but haven't because they've been buried in the file cabinet for so long. I'll have to live to be 150 to try all the recipes I've saved but haven't yet tried.
One of my favorite things is experimenting with new recipes. I try not to change recipes the first time I make them but then like to add my own touches if/when I make them again. When my husband gets home from work in the evening he will look at the pots on the stove and say "an experiment tonight?". Luckily he's a willing "guinea pig".
