blank pages

we love good food at our house
but i realized that we are always
cooking the same things
i spend so much time reading
and clipping
recipes out of newspapers
and magazines
i have a huge collection that
i always meant to get around to trying
but never did
until recently
i've started cooking and baking 
my way through the pile
a few years ago i bought this lovely blank
leather bound book in Italy
and never filled it
so now as i try recipes
if they are a success
they are included in my blank book
i have entered a few of my favorites already
such as joe beef's lobster spaghetti
my special carrot cake
poulet chasseur
my mom's oatmeal cookies
and lemon cloud pudding
hopefully soon it won't
be blank for much longer
