I'm undertaking two challenges this year, one is my reading challenge which I am going to blog about later this week, secondly is this one, the 52 Recipes in 52 Weeks one. More specifically I am going to try to cook those 52 recipes from 52 different cookbooks.
I first saw this challenge mentioned on Twitter a couple of weeks ago and now I can't remember where - so if it was you, I apologise for not mentioning you here! It's no secret that I have a lot of cookbooks (315 at last count) and I haven't used them all, certainly over the past few months I've seemed to turn to old favourites so I'm hoping this challenge will force me into spending more time sitting down reading them and actually using more of the books I have collected.
I've got my first few recipes planned and will be blogging one of them shortly. I'm already a bit behind as my new cooking regime has only started this week so I've got some catch-up to do this week - I envisage this happening a couple of times during the year when holidays/real life get in the way! I've got a new page up there (look up, that's it, where those tabs are) where I shall list the recipes I have cooked as I go. The idea behind the page is that it will also shame me into doing it as nobody wants to see a big blank list do they?
Books I am going to be cooking from in the next few months include Jamie's 15 Minute Meals, Paul Hollywoods baking book, Nigella Kitchen and a couple of curry cookbooks I have acquired recently. Can't beat a good curry!
Are you taking part in any blog challenges in 2013, cooking or otherwise? Would love to hear about them if you are!
