I love to cook. I’m not afraid to experiment in the kitchen and even better is that I’m actually pretty good at it. If I have no real plan and I’m not sure what to make for supper? Let me see what we have in the refrigerator and the pantry and I’ll whip something up with what is on hand. Chances are it will be tasty.
There aren’t too many things that I don’t like to eat either. Bologna? No, thanks. Olives? I keep trying but I just don’t like them. Head Cheese or tripe? Not a chance. But for the most part I’m willing to try new things.
New recipes included.
I hate to get in a food rut. I don’t want to make the same stuff over and over when there is a world of delicious food out the to experience. Mmm…food.
So…I set a challenge for myself.
100 Recipes in 1 Year.
That might be a little enthusiastic with a baby on the way and life in general. But, it is just about two new recipes a week on average. Plus, I like the way it sounds. It sort of rolls of the tongue. One year, one hundred recipes.
Over the next 52 weeks I will attempt to make 100 new to me recipes—entrees, sides, salads, marinades, drinks, desserts, etc.—in order to broaden my arsenal of awesome eats. Anything goes. I’m pushing through the stacks of recipes I’ve cut out over the years and never made. I’m finding a ton of yummy looking new ideas and pinning them on my Pinterest boards to try. I’m modifying them as I see fit and I’m using my family as guinea pigs and taste testers.
I’ll share the results—and the recipes—with all of you.
I started this little venture on June 30th and have tried 6 new recipes so far.
- Shish Tawook Chicken with Garlic Sauce (6.30.11)
- Cheesy Ham & Hashbrown Bake (7.1.11)
- Homemade Butter (7.4.11)
- Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette (7.8.11)
- Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken (7.10.11)
- Homemade Barbecue Sauce (7.24.11)
It’s going to be a delicious adventure.
