...one month down-5 to go...

It's been a month since I've started my challenge. And BOY, do I need to HUSTLE! I've only logged 10 recipes!! Well, I'm pretty proud of myself that I've made it this far. I thought it would be fun to do a "progress report" once a month to log any things I've learned, or just check my progress.

Things I've learned thus far:
- I like almonds!
- even if you're short on time, you really CAN throw together something DELICIOUS (don't let time scare you)
- I still don't like mustard
- how to peel tomatoes
- if the recipe says to chill for 12 hours... CHILL FOR 12 HOURS!
- to just try it! Don't let ingredients scare you out of making something.

I love my cookbook, and I love hearing from people that I've inspired them to cook more, or try new recipes. I'm not sure I've ever wrote this, but I am in no way affiliated with the ladies of "Our Best Bites". I'm not a sponsor for them, a friend of theirs, or anything.... I'm just someone that came across their cookbook, fell in love, then challenged myself!

Also, for those that do follow this blog, is there anything you'd like to see on this blog? Or any changes I should make? I'm open for suggestions!

Thanks for joining me on my journey!! Here's to cooking!

Did you ever get brave and email Sara and Kate to let them know you are doing this?


I really love that you are including what you are learning...not only about the recipies and ingedients, but also about the way you feel, and your likes and dislikes! Sweet blog page!
