A Cooking Course - CHALLENGE!!

For years, I have cursed myself for buying cookbooks and then not ever feeling like I have properly exploited their benefit. I thought about cooking my way through one or two, recipe by recipe for ages and then several years ago came across the book "Julie & Julia" but the sort of "chick lit" bent didn't appeal to me greatly. My friend Cris agrees with me - she also wants to "do" a cookbook. Everyone in food blogs seems to be writing cookbooks - how about cooking your way through a really good one?

I'm planning to tackle "The Millennium Cookbook" and my friend Cris is going to tackle "The Gluten-Free Vegetarian Kitchen" by Donna Kein (212 pages) AND "Recipes for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet" by Raman Prasad (224 pages).

Anyone else interested in this challenge?

I love the idea but couldn't pull it off right now with my own challenge. Since I can't go buy any ingredients, I'd have a hard time finding recipes I could make.

I do look forward to reading your exploits, though! I wish I lived close enough to sample the results, too, especially from the Millenium Cookbook. Yum!

I contacted you through FB about this. Cris sent me an email asking if I was interested. I am!

I love this idea but I'm not ambitious enough to tackle it right now. Can't wait to see what develops though in your cooking!
