January in the northern hemisphere is often grey and cold. The days are short and evenings long. Curling up in front of the fire with a good book sounds so inviting and a pleasant way to relax. And what better way than with a good cookbook. What? You don't read cookbooks? Come on now, they are some of the most interesting books to read! Through lists of ingredients, instructions, and beautiful illustrations you can taste, touch, smell, feel, and see the many delicious aspects of good cooking! And all without any calories. Unfortunately there hasn't been much time in my schedule recently for cookbook reading, but I did enjoy moving my cookbooks to another room as Brent prepares to install a new kitchen at our house. The cookbooks are now neatly arranged in the living room, and although they seem somewhat out of place in this formal room, they are handy with comfortable chairs and a blazing fire nearby. Maybe this winter would be a good time for me to share some of my favorite ones with you. I'll see if I can find some time to browse a cookbook or two so I can share a review with you soon.
