Ahhhh, cookbooks, cookbook writing, food blogging…they all come together for me. Inspiration hidden within, gradually expressing itself and taking its course. And I agree, it is great to be able to write about one’s own passion. It just unfolds. I think I learn more and more every day, about what I like, do not like, about what I can or cannot do, and about me generally speaking. I am thankful I discovered this form of media.

And what did I do this morning?
I bought 3 new cookbooks on line!

  2. Bea,

    Thanks so much for directing me to this link. What a great piece! (I also listened to the Passion for Knitting piece).

    I don’t know if I will ever be able to fully describe the feeling I get when I come across another cookbook that I have to buy! It’s like your senses start singing …
