Late Night Reading: Do You Read Cookbooks in Bed?

Some people read mystery novels. Others prefer histories of former presidents or Arctic adventures to usher them into sleep. Me? These days, my bedtime stories take the form of recipes. Are you the same?

My husband says that he knew I was serious about cooking when I started coming to bed with a stack of cookbooks in my arms. And it's true. There just came a point when thumbing through a new cookbook made me feel just as relaxed and happy as settling in with the latest New York Times best seller. Years later, it still does!
