I love cookbooks. I could spend hours paging through them...and if you want to make my day...buy me a cookbook. I have my favourites...but really any cookbook will do.
There's just one...teeny...tiny...small...problem....I NEVER USE THEM!
In fact I cant recall, making one meal out of my many cookbooks. But they do look so pretty on the kitchen shelf...and I do love them.
Which brings to me Saturday. I was flipping through the channels, and came across one of my all time favourite movies, Julie & Julia. How perfect is that movie...its has...food, blogging, New York, cookbooks, America, France all rolled into one movie...all of my favourite things.
And it got me thinking...as well as a little nagging from the husband...who cannot for the life of him understand how come I have never used a single recipe...men!...that maybe I should create a little challenge for myself.
So this is it. I don't have a deadline...my only rule is that I have to make at least one new recipe from any of my cookbooks, a week. It can be a main meal, or just a side dish...whatever...as long as I use my cookbooks, or one of my hundred Food & Home magazines, at least once a week. And then I am going to blog about it.
What do you think....I think that's do-able hey?
So my own cookbook challenge starts next week...wish me and my ever-increasing waist line luck!
