I like old stuff. Things that look "old," things that really are old and things I can one day pass onto my children.

IMG_7954I also like to cook, and have done considerable amounts of cooking since graduating in December. Thus, why I started a handwritten recipe book. This recipe has driven Nick crazy since I started it, mostly because I've been writing down recipes from Pinterest (But only the tried and true ones, because we've all had the Pinterest "fail"). AND I usually copy them down during our nightly TV time. But my thought is - who knows how long this social medium, Pinterest, will last? For all we know, it could be the next MySpace.

Here's one of my favorites: Loaded Baked Potato Soup we've made it 3 times in 2 months!

TWENTY recipes each for beef, pork and lamb! I can't wait to try them. Apparently I've always loved old stuff?

So - what do you collect? AND what's your favorite Pinterest recipe? Make sure you follow my boards - I've got some really neat stuff!
