A Challenge

I am a big fan of challenges.  I love reading challenges on Goodreads.  I love cooking challenges on The Food Network.  I have seen this challenge on a few blogs, so I thought I would try it.  This year, I will complete 52 brand new recipes.  Well, they'll be brand new to me.  I love cooking, but as of yet, I have not attempted actually creating new recipes.  Challenge for next year maybe?  I want to find a few new go-to meals.  You can find my progress on the page "52 Recipe Challenge."

Here are the ones I've completed so far...

1. Bacon Parmesan Pasta (1/3/11) - It's taken several times to fix this recipe to be exactly what I want.  Hopefully I can make it again soon so I can post the recipe.

2. Almond Biscotti (1/8/11) - I really enjoyed this and it has inspired me to start keeping biscotti on hand for a quick, grab-and-go breakfast.  My mom sent me two new biscotti recipes I'd like to try (chocolate chip and chocolate pistachio)

3. Tomato, Olive, and Feta Pasta (1/19/11) - Yummy!  This is definitely something I'll be making more often.

4. Buffalo Chicken Dip (2/7/11) - This was yummy, but very spicy.  I need the right occasion to make this.

5. Greek Cookies (2/12/11) - These were different than what I remember eating as a child.  I want to try mixing the nuts into the dough.

6. Strawberry and Bleu Cheese Spinach Salad (2/12/11) - Absolutely delicious!  This might be my new favorite salad.  I want to make it again this week so I can post the recipe.
