Challenges

I've decided to impose a cookbook challenge of my own to up my blogging rate and use books that I don't normally cook out of. I made a list of 5 books that rarely see the light and will cook out of a sixth that will be chosen by random. By random, I mean I will line the books up and see which one the big cat steps on.

My list, as follows:

Christina Cooks by Christina Pirello. When we were forced to switch to digital, I discovered we had 3 OPB channels, one of which carries Christina's cooking show. I haven't been able to catch it lately but watching someone cook vegetables and not much more....sigh.

Take 5, Weight Watcher. Yeah, I bought this the first time I went through the program and I've cooked out of it once? Twice? Anyways, both times have been lovely and most of it is easy to veganize. Well, the stuff that doesn't revolve around meat, but I'll probably veganize one of those!

The (Almost) No Fat Cookbook by Bryanna Clark Grogan. What, you think I should lose weight? 'Cause that's totally not why I picked this one.

The Vegetarian Cookbook. It's Reader's Digest, has pretty pictures and lots of dairy. BRING IT ON.

The Vegetarian Times Complete Cookbook. Circa 1995, this thing is HUGE. I haven't cracked it open since scoring it at a vintage shop for $5....

Stay tuned.....

Neat! I will pledge to make and eat the item you post from your weight watchers book. I do not often cook lite and vegan lite that is TASTY? That could be useful.

i love when i accidentally come across Christina Cooks! i think it's always starts at 11am, but i never know what day b/c when i think of it i'll go to 10.3 and it'll be annoying Simply Ming dude. (i want to rip his necklace off).

i look forward to watching you blog your experience! i've not been motivated at all to do something like this. my sister's kitchen is just not mine and i don't like cooking in it. there's always something in the way (it's a bit crowded) or the pot/pan i want to use is dirty. or i can't find something.
