Read more round ups here.

Thanks to everyone who has since joined the Cookbook Challenge. We started off with 4 people and at the time of writing, it has now grown to 15 people! Good on everyone for utilising their cookbooks more!

I had a great time reading everyone’s creations and drooling over all the photos! There was a good mix of sweet and savoury with everyone doing something different! It seems that lemon was the citrus of choice for many of us! Well done to those who did more than one recipe. Here is a list of everyone’s recipes in order of posting.

I managed to put my entry up as well…ugh…better later than never…:-)


Iron Chef Shellie November 23, 2009 at 8:15 pm

Ohhhhh I like what you've done here!

I just spilled lots of my Indian dish on the carpet… not happy!! I was going to bake as well, but after that messy incident I retire for the evening! 😛

Eek how exciting! I might join in sporadically – will be moving around quite a bit in the next few months so can't commit permanently unfortunately! But great job here girl! And thanks for the advice on your last post – will definitely be taking it into account when I attempt the recipe!

Hi Rilsta. I have posted my week 1 recipe up from Damien Pignolet's book

Hi Adrian: Thanks! Hehe, I think butter chicken is one of the first things people think of when you say Indian!

Hi Yours Truly: Thanks for your entry. I have added you to the list.

Hi Shellie: Oh crap!!! On carpet too! I hope you were able to get the stain out!!

Hi Vee: No worries! Just join in the weeks you can. Let me know when you do so I can add your entry to the wrap up!

Hi Chit Chat Chomp: Yes, week 1 is down! Thanks for your entry, I have added it now.

Hi B1: Thanks for your entry, I have added it now!

I've recently started a similar challenge!

Any tips?


Rilsta February 5, 2010 at 10:53 am

Hi Erina: That's cool! I found that having a weekly theme or something to work towards really helped when you didn't feel motivated!
