Cookbook Challenge 2010

Theme: Love Cookbook: Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan Love was an appropriate theme for this week’s Cookbook Challenge with Valentine’s Day this week. Valentine’s Day this year also happens to fall on the same day as Chinese New Year’s Day so it was a busy weekend for us! I wanted to […]


Theme: Eggs Cookbook: The Cook’s Companion by Stephanie Alexander This week should be an easy week to find a recipe because eggs in recipes are so common. The hard part was picking just one recipe to make! I made an absolutely heavenly rich chocolate ice cream, cooked custard style but it didn’t photograph well, so […]


Theme: Mixed Cookbook: delicious. quick smart cook by Valli Little Inspiration abandoned me this week and on Friday night I was still thinking of what to make. Then I realised that I wouldn’t have much time for cooking this weekend so ideally I would have to make something on the Friday night. The first thing […]


The obvious recipe for me to make for this week’s “cool” theme was more frozen dessert. I was going to try a sorbet since I have only made an ice cream and frozen yoghurt, but it seemed rather boring since I have used my ice cream maker the previous two weeks in a row! I […]


Theme: Berry Cookbook: The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz Yoghurt? Yogurt? Or yoghourt? What is the correct way of spelling it? Apparently all three ways are correct – I guess it must be personal choice. Yogurt is more of an American way of spelling it and I see it spelt as yoghurt a lot at […]


Theme: Sweet Cookbook: Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book by Ben Cohen & Jerry Greenfield I got an ice cream maker for Christmas so I have been on the hunt for some recipes to try, starting with a plain vanilla ice cream. I figure if I can find a base vanilla ice […]


Theme: Sweet Cookbook: How to be a Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson This week’s choice of recipe was based solely on ingredients. I had a block of cream cheese and a block of milk chocolate that was expiring in a few days so I was looking for a recipe with both cream cheese and milk […]


Theme: Soft Cookbook: The Cook’s Companion by Stephanie Alexander The first time I tried to make this recipe was a few months ago. I had agreed to make a birthday cake for hubby’s cousin and found out he likes cheesecakes, so what better recipe to use than one that had “best ever” in its name? […]


Theme: Christmas Cookbook: The Basics: A really useful cookbook by Anthony Telford I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas that was filled with a lot eating and merriment! We had a wonderful family Christmas day lunch with too much food as usual but everyone had a great time! It was our first year hosting […]


Theme: Greek Cookbook: The Australian Women’s Weekly Cook I got together with a few other Cookbook Challengers, Arale 79, Kat and Agnes, for a Greek cooking feast for this week’s theme. Greek is a cuisine I don’t have often, though I don’t mind it. I never cook Greek food at home and as a result, […]
