Week 5 saw a few new people joining the Cookbook Challenge, bringing the total to 23! I find the weeks are going by very quickly and Christmas is just around the corner! I hope everyone has big Christmas feasts planned – I know I have!

Not a lot of people have posted their Week 5 recipes at the time of me writing this post so if you want your listing added, please either comment below or send me an email. Lamb was a prominent feature in the recipes for this week, though there was also fish and a couple of desserts. Tessa Kiros’ Falling Cloudberries cookbook & George Calombaris’ Greek Cookery was used twice. Sarah from The Sugar Junkie deserves a special mention for making 4 things this week when she was worried if she could even make one!

Here is a list of everyone’s recipes in order of posting.
