As a full-time working mom with an almost 5-year-old who prefers chicken nuggets to all other foods and a husband who has discerning tastes (I didn’t say picky!), I have fallen into a rut of cooking the same stuff week after week. Putting something new on the table only to have it panned or totally avoided (Charlie) is a bit discouraging. But I’m willing to give it a try – at least once a week.
I’ve also been struggling to find a way to save the recipes I like and add notes about whether it’s worth making again and/or if I’d make any changes. I have far too many recipe printouts cluttering my kitchen, and end up searching for recipes on line most times anyway. A recipe blog seems like a way to log my successes and failures – so here goes!
My goal for 2013 is at least one new recipe a week – with results captured here. Hopefully by year end, I will have a collection of recipes that my family enjoys. Fingers crossed!
