I confess I'm one of the many that have accumulated a multitude of books and other culinary accoutrements, but find myself in the kitchen on rare occasions. I can't pinpoint the problem outside of laziness. As of late I've felt inspired to bake and have purchased ingredients for this vain, but again it has yet to take place. At one point I enrolled in a short term culinary class to determine if my passion for food would be a viable career option. Admittedly the experience was not what I anticipated, and I came away with a real desire to escape the kitchen.

As such, I'm searching for suggestions and even a nudge if needed to get myself in gear and return to the thing I love. I find it wasteful and somewhat shameful that I have failed to utilize the things I've learned. Previous employment in a small gourmet shop provided high quality additions to my pantry that I long to use. But admittedly, I'm a little uncertain of where to begin.
