A great friend of mine, Cattie, and I love to cook and try out new recipes. We are often wowed by so many choices on Pinterest or any food magazine that grabs our attention. As I look through my row of cookbooks, I realize that only a few recipes has been tried in each one. And I am still wanting to buy so many other cookbooks.
Why am I not exploring all the recipes these books have to offer? Surely there are some that I can tackle.
So then Cattie and I decided to give ourselves a cookbook challenge. We would pick a cookbook, and between the two of us, make every recipe in that book. We decided that this would make us test out a recipe that we would never even think about. This challenge would also widen our food knowledge, as well as our cooking skills.
The first book we chose was Everyday Food: Great Food Fast. From the kitchen of Martha Stewart Living. Below is a blog of out trysts, good and bad, and what we thought of the recipe. Let's see how long it would take us to go through this entire book.
