recipe per week

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.


  1. Those cookies seem interesting. Of course, being cookies they will be tasty.

    I have yet to try Greek yogurt with honey. I'm assuming you use plain Greek yogurt? I have had vanilla and blueberry Greek yogurts, but have been scared to try the plain. I ate regular plain yogurt for a little while, but I just couldn't get into it so I decided to do flavored Greek yogurts since they seem to have less sugar than regular yogurt. It's too bad that Greek yogurt is more expensive because I would probably eat it more.

    I think this is the longest comment I've left on your blog and it figures it's about food haha.

  2. Food is where it's at though!

    Greek yogurt is really expensive, but I think I'm going to stick with for the healthy reasons. And I agree, plain yogurt is awful! I probably put more honey in it than I should (which is why I hesitate to buy the pre-packaged plain with honey, I just know it's not going to be enough) but it's still probably better than the other yogurts out there.

  3. Yeah, Greek yogurt with a lot of honey is probably better than a lot of other yogurts since they seem to have more junk in them. Maybe I will buy a thing of plain Greek yogurt the next time I'm out and try it with honey.
