Julia Child I am not...

A long, long time ago I decided that I wanted to be a chef. I was on a food network kick one summer I think it was before my 5th or 6th grade year of school. Not sure, but anyway. I watched Food Network and took notes, went with my mom to the store and made my parents try some dishes. I loved it. All of it. I wanted to own a restaurant and know all there is to know about food.
Then reality hit and I realized restaurant hours are not fun, and my other dream of being a stay at home mommy was not likely to work well in that scenario.
Oh well...I still think it would be so fun to own a little cafe somewhere. You know with quaint tables on a terrace where people could eat good food, and read or work or just people watch. It would be awesome.
Ok all that to say that I love food...and cooking food and baking food. And I love reading about here are some cookbooks that I have decided need to be in my collection.
