call within the next ten minutes...

I tend to not use cookbooks much,
although my red Betty Crocker that was given
to me by my much-adored high school home-ed teacher is always
on-the-ready for solid foundational recipes.

I cherish that book.
Thanks, Mrs. G!

But nowadays...I search online a lot for recipes.
Oh golly, a lot.

So that makes for many, many printed recipes.
I put most of them in a notebook...but I also
tend to tape my favorites up inside my cabinets...

I have five cabinet doors that are covered in recipes.

But since my doors are filling up,
I started looking for something that I could buy to hold
my recipes while I am making that particular dish.
Something that I could put at eye-level.

I couldn't find a thing.

Then my own ingenuity stepped up to the plate.
I came up with a high-sophisticated device
to hold my recipe-of-the-moment.

Two-sided tape and a clothes pin.

It's the greatest invention ever.

Be on the look-out for my infomercials.

And if you call operators within the next ten minutes,
I will give you an exclusive offer that will not
be available in stores anywhere.

Call now.

Haha...I love Jean's comment. :) How about sharing some your favorite recipes now and then?! Please? The easy ones? Some of us don't cook very well and we need someone to give us recipes...very easy ones...write slowly...
