Cooking Challenge

It's no shock that I love to cook... and eat! :) I have recently become addicted to food blogs and recipe sites and have accumulated a plethora of new recipes. So, I have given myself a challenge. Make at least one new recipe a day for the month of August. It can be anything, from a full on main course to a new smoothie. I will post pictures, recipes, and reviews here. Hopefully I won't be too boring!

I have also joined an online group called "The Daring Bakers". Once a month we are sent a recipe. We must make that recipe, provide pictures, and a write-up on that recipe by the deadline. Recipes must be kept secret until the deadline date, so look for that towards the end of the month!

I know some of you must think I am crazy! With a deployed husband, an energetic three year old, and a 2 month old who rarely sleeps, why on earth would I create more work for myself? Well, to be honest, cooking soothes me. I look forward to being in the kitchen. And, hey, my family has to eat, right?

Hope you enjoy following me through this next month! Now... off to make my menu and grocery list!
