To try to encourage ourselves to eat at home more and try even more new recipes, we are each going to choose a cookbook and attempt to cook every recipe in them. I know this is not a new or original idea, but it is a fun one that I can get behind. Plus, lately I have been sticking with old favorites rather than branching out to find new ones. Justin is still deciding on exactly which book to commit to (after he first picked up my On Cooking text and I looked at him like he had lost his mind) and I’ve chosen one I know I can count on, Bread: A Baker’s Book of Techniques and Recipes, by Jeffrey Hamelman. There are 118 recipes for different breads in this book, of which I’ve already tried about 15. Mmm… I’m already starting to anticipate the warm, yeasty smells! I promise to report on the failures as well as the successes – even though they’ll probably make me cry. Or gag. And please feel free to drop by to help clean the dirty dishes! First one to the sink gets their own loaf!
