Day 110: Donated Cook Books to the Library

My wife is one of the best amateur chefs around. I am not exaggerating. She doesn't just make easy things either. She makes full on gourmet dishes which is incredible seeing as how she has a full-time job and we now have a daughter to care for. One of my goals in life is to open a small cafe for her to show off her culinary skills so that others can experience the deliciousness that I get on a daily basis. Before meeting her, I had no idea what Fleur De Sel, Creme Fraiche, and ramps were. She has been able to build her skills because of the fact that she has read countless cook books, cooking websites, cooking magazines, and watched countless hours of the food network. Because she has been able to build all of this culinary knowledge, we currently have an overabundance of cook books and magazines. So today, for my random act of kindness, I am donating a number of books and magazines to the Chicago Public Library. Maybe through this act, some future celebrity chefs will get their starts.


  1. I feel that in the next lifetime, you two will be King and Queen. Keep up the great work :) Love it!!!

  2. Cookbooks are one the best moving materials in public libraries. If your library has a book sale, cookbooks are the biggest sellers at used book sales, too. So this was a very good thing to do.

  3. Love your guy'z blog, so nice to see someone focus on the positive...PLUS, you reminded me that I have a box of books to take to the public library too!

    Have a wonderful day!
