2015 Cookbook Challenge

Hey! Welcome to my Cookbook Challenge! For the last 2 years I’ve been trying to cook something “new 2 me” at least once a week. Then, I’d share the recipe. Check out the recipes for 2013 or 2014 by clicking on the year.

I decided to do something a little different this year. That’s how THIS challenge was born! I’m going to try recipes from a new cookbook every month. I’ll write a little blub about it. I *might* share some of the recipes I tweak, but I don’t think it’d be fair to share too many recipes from each cookbook. The authors put a lot of effort into writing the cookbooks. So without further ado… click on the headers to see each months post!
