A few weeks ago, I rented “Julie&Julia”.  And I was inspired.  Not necessarily to cook a whole cookbook in a year, but to do something... like a New Years resolution except one that I would actually be accountable for and keep.  My mind couldn’t stop thinking about it, feeling like there was something there for me to do and ideas swirled.

A few weeks later found me at MOPS.  The topic of the day was getting more organized with your meal planning, shopping, budgeting.  And again I was inspired to do something… So many girls at my table expressed the desire to get more organized, make a meal plan for the week and expand their horizons and try new recipes; however, sometimes having the time or energy to do so makes the task difficult.  I went home that day determined to figure out what it was that kept knocking on my hearts door…

I love cooking.  I’m not gourmet, nor am I fancy.  I just like cooking food… food that tastes good, smells good, doesn’t make me fat and is a dream to eat.  I derive joy from creating something tasty and healthy and that doesn’t burn in the pan.   However, I get tired of cooking the same things over and over.  Hence the solution to my problems came into formation…

Found here for your viewing (and dining) enjoyment:

I have challenged myself to find and implement a brand-new recipe each week.  For you, my faithful reader, I will post the said recipe as well as a review of how it turned out.  If we’re lucky, you and I will have 52!! new recipes to add to our repertoire at years end.

So wish me luck… and welcome to my kitchen!
