The Collection

This blog begins today as a motivating force.  Its existence is a motivation to address the ever-increasing stockpile of never-before-tried recipes I have in my pantry, a motivation to open the creative floodgates (or at least turn on the faucet), and a motivation to get my butt in the kitchen every day – something I love to do but often forget or dismiss.  With this blog I hope to share my love of food, cooking, and learning. 

Those who know me have asked me why, since I love cooking so much, I don’t open a restaurant or a catering business.  Believe me, I’ve thought about it.  But it is the spontaneity and the chance elements of home cooking that keep me interested.  If I had to recreate the same dish night after night, or make 1,000 mini tartlets rather than 4, I’d be bored out of my mind, not to mention cranky.

So thank you for coming to my site and joining me on my journey through the mountain of cookbooks, magazines, and cut-outs I’ve gathered along the way.  I hope we both learn a few things in the process!

    Yeah, Katharine!! Stick with this and you may just solve my future menu problems as well as provide me with the incentive to cook a new meal every once in a while.

    Sadly I have no Whole Foods, but I will make do and look forward to your next blog.

    Look forward to being with you in a couple of weeks.

    Thank you! I too am Whole-Foods-Less, hence the kid in a candy store mentality when I get to one. No worries, we can make do with Market Basket! I can’t wait to see you either…
