I have some favorites that I use occasionally:
- The Bon Appetite Cookbook
- Rocco’s 5 Minute Flavor
- The Vegetable Dishes I Can’t Live Without
- Real Simple Best Recipes: Easy, Delicious Meals
- Williams-Sonoma Bride & Groom Entertaining
But, in general, I’m not much of a cookbook gal. I like them, but it’s much easier for me to find a recipe on a blog or website.
Well, now that I’ve moved about 2o cookbooks into my new house, my thinking has changed about them. Basically, if they’re taking up space in my kitchen, I might as well use them!
So, I’ve created a Cookbook Challenge for myself. From now until the end of the year, I plan to cook at least one recipe from my cookbooks each week. I’m sure that I will end up making more than one each week, but it’s a nice goal to start. Plus, I have a feeling that once I start flipping through my cookbooks, I will discover some really great recipes and want to make them.
On tap for this week is a little cookbook called: Sandwich. I figured since we’re still getting settled in our new place, I should keep this week’s challenge simple!
If you’d like to participate in my Cookbook Challenge, just dig out your cookbooks and start selecting recipes to try. I really hope this post inspires you to use your cookbooks more often and/or try new recipe from them!
