Is it too much? Am I obsessive-compulsive?


Not About Food 27

Is it too much? Am I obsessive-compulsive?

My husband and close friends tease me all the time about my cookbook and recipe collections. I probably have 150 cookbooks not counting the compilations I've made over the years (another dozen plus). I clip recipes, I subscribe to magazines (Saveur, Fine Cooking, Cooks Illustrated, Bon Appetit, Gourmet, Cuisine at Home, Rachel Ray). I always have a box of recipes ready to compile. They are compiled according to how likely I am to use them.
Silver is first, then Gold, then Red (usually for hard to find ingredients recipes). I don't watch any food shows on television. I read cookbooks like novels and have a master notebook of favorites and where to find them. Do I need to see a doctor? (smile)
