The Cookbook Collector Starts a Recipe Blog


When I was a young girl about the age of eight, my grandmother bought me a cookbook. I remember it had a drawing of Strawberry Shortcake on the cover and the pages inside had easy recipes that kids could make with help from parents.

I loved this cookbook and took it with me everywhere I went. I even read it while in the bathtub, and one day the book slipped into the water and was ruined. No amount of blow drying could save the soggy pages.

I cried for days about the book and I told my grandma how sorry I was. She wasn't angry. She just bought more cookbooks for me as the years went by.

My collection today is large and I have cookbooks of today and years past.

I especially love the church cookbooks. There is something nostalgic about the idea of women, many my elders, collecting their memories in recipe form and sharing them with others.

In an effort to downsize my cookbooks (because they're taking up 4 shelves in my pantry), I decided to revisit the pages and post my favorites here.

At first I wasn't sure about a recipe blog and I considered copying my recipes onto index cards, but let's face it. We're live in a technology age. The logical thing to do was to add them to a blog. It's free storage and a heck of a lot easier than having all the paper lying in and around my recipe box.

Welcome to Belly Hungry! I'm so excited to share my food memories and recipes with you.

Just like live casinos, online casinos put minimum bet amounts in place to ensure that they are making enough money off of their patrons. Most of the larger casinos will have small bet amounts that will attract a larger crowd, but some of the smaller sites will have larger amounts, sometimes not affordable to the every once in a while player, to make up for the lack of players.
