I've always admired someone who can cook. I've never really had the talent and I'm too timid to try something/buy something new. I think I hesitate in thinking that either the ingredients will be too expensive or that I'll just ruin it.
But as my interest in design blogs has grown, so too has my interest in finding great recipes. I have an enormous recipes folder and at least 3 applications on my iPhone (which is cool by the way) to help me find new recipes. So I got to thinking, what if I just push myself to make one new recipe a week. It could be from cookies to pasta, but 1, single recipe that I've said to myself, 'I need to bookmark this. This looks good.' I need to take it out of just the files and into my kitchen.
With that said, I'm going to try to do this once a week. It will probably start this week as I plan on making THESE cookies in the not so distant future. I won't and simply cannot be one of those awesome foodie bloggers that takes pictures of all of my creations, but I will try when the occasion strikes. But I will certainly link to recipes as most of the awesome foodie bloggers have done all the grunt work for me.
Wish me luck!
Also, let me share this fantastic illustration from Julia Rothman, whom I love, depicting my new absolute favorite snack. This and greek yogurt with honey are my new obsessions.
