2013 Cookbook Challenge

Now that Christmas is over, my mind has turned to the new year. I love new beginnings, fresh starts and opportunities to set some goals! I am one of those people who lives day to day life by my to-do lists - seriously I can barely function without one!
Anyway, last year, instead of New Year's resolutions, I created a list of 6 'aims' of things that I wanted to achieve in 2012. I will be reviewing by progress at the weekend, but for now, my mind has turned to next year's list!

One of my aims is the Cookbook Challenge!

The aim of the challenge is simple; to choose a recipe book - anyone you like - and cook every single recipe in it during 2013.

I really enjoy cooking but  I find that I am always cooking the same tried and tested meals out of them! So this is a great opportunity to try a whole set of new recipes!

I am cooking from Lorraine Pascal's ' Home Cooking Made Easy', it contains 100 recipes including starters, breads, mains, desserts, cookies and cakes! And they all look delicious!

I will be blogging about my progress, photographing my efforts, and at the end of the year, reviewing my chosen cookbook!

Want in? Why not join me?
Set yourself the challenge of cooking every recipe in a cookbook this year.

All you need to do....

1. Choose a cookbook
be realistic here - choose a book with recipes in you will enjoy cooking (and eating!)
2. Get cooking! Blog, instagram, tweet, whichever - just share your progress 
3. Join us at the end of the year to review your cookbook

Grab a button, spread the word, and get cooking!

  1. Hi Rebbeca, that's a nice idea maybe I'll participate in the challange. For years I cooked a lot. Now my daughter is a great cook and I'm a little tired so I just make easy and fast cookings :)
    You make me smile, I'm a serious to do-list person too!
    Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year, all the best!

  2. Oh, wow! I love this challenge! Count me in! Thank you for sharing the fun at Wednesday's Adorned From Above Blog Hop! Are you entered for the pouch giveaway? -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  3. This sounds like fun! I'm in!

  4. Cool Idea!!! Let me check my cookbooks:)

  5. Great idea.. Did you see the movie Julie and Julia? It was fantastic..about a blogger who created all the recipes from a Julia Child cookbook. Both hubby and I loved it!

    Once of my goals for this year is to do a lot of once a month cooking..perhaps I will look into one of those books and participate! Cool challenge.

    I've just started an 31 Days of Nothing Challenge..not spending any unnecessary $ in January. LOL

  6. Another great idea for trying recipes! Love it. Visiting from DearCreatives.com

  7. This is a fantastic idea. I fall in love with cookbooks and then get involved in another. I would love to check out a vegetable cookbook and use that for my annual challenge. Thanks for the idea. I will get back to you if I can find a cookbook that appeals.

  8. I am already back. I have the perfect book, Eating Well, Fast and Flavorful Meatless Meals. There are 150 meatless recipes and I am a huge fan of Eating Well. Thanks for giving me the opportunity.

    Please do stop by, occasionally, to see how I am doing.

  9. Dear Rebecca,

    Thank you for visiting me at Create With Joy! I LOVE your challenge! I was so inspired by it that although I am unable to join you at this time, I have featured it at this week's Inspire Me Monday party - congrats!

    I hope you'll join us for our weekly events (Inspire Me Monday, Wordless Wednesday, and Friendship Friday) as I'd love to get to know you better.

    Have a fabulous week! :-)

  10. Oh, I might have to try this!!! Let me find a book!
