Cooking it up

Here's a  great idea, from Trish of http://www.lovelaughterinsanity.com/ - a cookbook challenge.

I am no kind of cook, in any way, shape or form. I have a few basic recipes that I fall back on and that's about it. However, if I do push myself juuuuust that little further, I do enjoy the process.

And, I own cookbooks. I own cookbooks in the same way a magpie might own a diamond ring. It knows that the ring is pretty, but it has no idea what it's for. That's .. pushing the metaphor but I hope you know what I mean. Cookbooks are pretty! They have deceptively attractive layouts! Photos of food! What's not to like?

So. As a non-cook, I own cookbooks. I look at them every day, but I admire them in the same way I admire horses and snakes - very carefully and from a safe distance.

So stumbling over Trish's challenge is sort of perfect. Pet the snake! (Er. Anyway.) I don't want to get carried away with impossible dreams, so my plan is to pick one recipe once a month that I feel I'm capable of. It won't be soon - it'll probably be in a couple of weeks, but I'll take photos of the carnage, er, the results and link up with Trish's monthly .... linking thing.

 Er.

Bon apetit?

It felt like a suitable metaphor - lol

I could cry telling you that this coming link-up will likely be the last. BUT I'll be starting a new one that will encompass all these creative so you can still link-up there. Bahahaha. So...hope you have something to share next Saturday (Mar 7) :)

Lol Trish <3 I looked through my cookbooks but nothing stood out (which means my skill levels aren't up to snuff) so I made something from pinterest - lol. But I'll be in, anyway :D
