You guys are making me so hungry with your posts!!!!

Also, I love hearing your stories related to the recipes that you love.

Just a bit of an update about my blog: I am going to do a test run this summer, just to make sure that my idea is enough to sustain in blog form. For this test run, I'm whipping out my librarian skills by researching and highlighting the history of cookbooks while writing about my kitchen-based adventures.

Oh you are? That is so cool. Why don't you email me at I'd love to meet up after we move and talk about food (both sweet and savory).

Just returned home from college and there waiting for me on my bed was my copy of the JoC!!! Once again, big thanks to everyone who has commented so far. Now that I am done with being an undergraduate, I have the entire summer to prepare for my upcoming food project. In fact, reading everyone's comments and stories related to the JoC has inspired me to research and explore both the history of the book itself as well as its authors.

I must say that I am really excited to get started since I'll be combining two subjects that I absolutely love: food and history. You can never go wrong with that combination.

Also I must try this pancake/waffle recipe, everyone is raving about it.

Mhmm I'm a stuffing fanatic so I'm definitely looking forward to trying that recipe.

The fact that she uses it as a resource is why she suggested it to me actually. I'm a fairly decent baker, having been practicing constantly for the last year and half though my cooking skills are something to be desired. Actually, she said that the JoC used to be her go to guide for tips and what not though after borrowing an America's Test Kitchen cookbook from the local library, she is has switched over. We have three ATK cookbooks now, not including my personal copies of cooks and bakers illustrated

Thanks for commenting! I am compiling a list to keep track of what people write. Its kind of funny that you said lemon bars since that was something I have been meaning to learn for ages.

So This Exists: Ravioli Pizza at Rosa's in Huntington, Long Island

I'm from Huntington and I have to say, out of all the pizzerias in town (and there are many) Rosa's is a personal favorite. Gonna miss it when I move out to Boston for grad school. Their baked ziti pizza is good too!

As for the salad pizza: they just pop it into the oven of course
