This Week BTT Asks: 
What’s your favorite hobby OTHER THAN reading?


Next to reading I think my biggest "Hobby" is watching movies.  I'm a pretty huge movie buff and have a collection that borders a bit on the insane but films are a passion of mine and since films are like reading I suppose that's why I love them so much.

My non media related favorite Hobby is cooking. I love to cook!! I find it so relaxing baking a loaf of bread or testing out new recipes in the kitchen. I've been really digging my crock pot this year and I'm trying to come up with a years worth of recipes to fill a chest freezer with. So far I'd say I've come up with around 3 months of different recipes to make and even found that the crock pot makes a far better lasagna than my stove ever did. I admit though that I'm not a big Baker.  Like seriously I've tried more than a dozen pie crust recipes and it always comes out meh. If you ever have a pie from me the crust is store bought, lol.  I also cannot for the life of me make mashed potatoes. Don't laugh but I really do fail at it. In fact, I delegate the task to my husband who actually makes pretty darn awesome mashed potatoes and since we usually have them with steak which he also cooks it works out well.

  1. I adore movies, too; my obsession for them equals my reading one....and I have collected 800+ movies and have shelves in the hallway for them. It's kind of insane...lol.

    I can't make pie crust either!

    Here's MY BTT POST

  3. I have to say that I'm more of a baker than a cook. That can be dangerous though :)

  6. I love to watch movies, too. You're right, it's like reading a book, too (in some ways).

    As for your questions -
    1) What is your favorite non reading hobby? That would have to be traveling.
    2) What food do you epically fail at cooking? There's this dish here in the Philippines called "Pansit," it's a noodle dish. I love eating it... yet I can't cook it perfectly.
