I decided many years ago (2014) that my New Years Resolution was going to be choosing a cookbook to make my way through that year one recipe at a time. It’s obviously a lot later now and I am definitely only a part of the way into the cookbook but I challenged myself recently to keep it up no matter how much time passes!
Julie and Julia was absolutely the inspiration for such a fun undertaking and so I challenge you to the same! Find a cookbook that interests you, challenges you, makes you smile…or drool…and dive in. It may be on your shelf or you may find “the one” at a local book store based on curb appeal only! No matter how you find it, find one and start your adventure. And let me know what you picked!
I chose Deb Perelman’s “The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook” because of the picture on the front (just being honest) but also because I could relate to her. She’s so much better at this whole blogging and cooking thing but I’m not trying to become someone else. I just want to challenge myself with new recipes, working with new ingredients & kitchen utensils while growing skills as a blogger. I desire to approach this project with integrity and be sure to give credit where it is due. So, let me know if I’ve broken a blogging law/courtesy or if I copied someone else and wrongly claimed credit. I’m not much of an original and take inspiration from just about everything around me so chances are if you like something I’m doing I should be telling you who I got the idea from.
This list below is what I have accomplished so far! Follow along!
