As mentioned in my post on Monday, I was inspired by the movie Julie & Julia to make my own cooking project. Well here it is:
Fran’s cook book project:
69 cook books
32 cooking magazines (12 x koken & genieten, 8 x Jamie, 12 x Light koken)
Total number of recipes to cook: 276
I have written before that I have about 80 cook books. Some of them I haven’t used although I have them for years. My project is to use 69 of my cook books in the next year and cook 2 to 3 recipes from every book. I also have a subscription to three cooking magazines and I want to cook at least 2 recipes from every new issue before the next one comes out.
I love to cook and I’ve said more than once I want to use my cook books more but I still don’t do that enough. The project starts Tuesday May 22. This is my birthday and I thought that is a perfect date to start with the project.
It may seem a lot of recipes, after all a year has 365 days, but the recipe can be anything: breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, pie or cake, snacks. It will happen I use more than 1 recipe a day.
I’m not going to post the recipes on my blog because all my cook books are in Dutch and we use different measures. It’s too much work to translate them and recalculate the ingredients. But I will look up on the internet if a recipe I made is online and if so, I will post the link.
My Friday post will be called “The Food Edition” as of today. I have made a new page where I will update the progress weekly.
Hope you will enjoy this cook journey with me.
Have a great weekend!
