It makes boys happy. It makes coworkers happy. It makes me happy.
Buddy, The Cake Boss, is Italian. Now he is also The Kitchen Boss on TLC.
I watched a couple episodes. Buddy obviously does not count calories.
I am in love.
Real Italian food. Real butter. Real fat on the meat. All the stuff that makes food good. It’s like seeing heaven.
I searched through his recipes on TLC’s website.
I scribbled things down.
I really scribbled. On sticky notes. On Super Sticky Post-It Notes to be exact. These are harder to misplace. They stick around longer. (Lame pun, I know. Oh well.)
I have an addiction to sticky notes. They are handy, they don’t take up a lot of space. I can fit them beside the touch pad on my laptop to write on them.
I have ambitions to organize my recipes. In a neat manner. One that doesn’t use sticky notes.
I write down 3 or 4 recipes a week, sometimes more. I stuff everything into a folder if its good. If its not, I throw it out. I don’t feel bad throwing out a small scrap of paper. I feel more wasteful trashing a whole sheet of paper with a recipe on it. So there are a lot of sticky notes in my folder. All of them are stuck together.
Yesterday, I went hunting for a brownie recipe. I made them almost a year ago. I looked through over 600 sticky notes to find the recipe. Oh my.
I’m working on organizing tomorrow. The end. I am not doing anything until at least 50 recipes are typed into my computer. And printed. And stuck into a binder. Into categories. So I can find them again. Easily.
But I digress.
