So, it is no surprise to anyone that I love to cook. I have always enjoyed cooking and being in the kitchen. Starting from an early age I was always in the kitchen. Either watching my Mom cut up a bunch of things and throw them in the crock pot, to watching my dad whip up the magical SECRET brownies, or hear the stories about Baba (my grandmother) burning the house down.

I love to cook but am just starting to learn what flavors mix well with what, how to take a recipe and make it for a smaller crowd, or how to create my own recipe. It is a learning process that I can't seem to get enough of. The best way that I learn is from other, I use them as inspiration.

So here is my inspiration quest of 54 recipes by Bethenny Frankel. For those of you that have been living on an ice cap and haven't heard of Bethenny Frankel she is an amazing women.

Starting Monday, August 15, 2010 I am giving myself 1 month to go through the recipe and see what I can learn.

May the journey begin.
