    Default Cooking an entire cookbook

    For Christmas I got simple dinners by Donna hay and everything in it looks so pretty that I have decided to step outside my food/cooking comfort zone and cook every recipe in it ( except I will be replacing the veal with something else). I'm picking 2-4 recipes every week and mixing them with my normal meals.

    So has anyone else ever done this and how did it go? and if you haven't would you like to pick a cookbook and join me.

    Yes!! We love Jamie Oliver and have picked recipes from his 15 minute meals book to try in amongst our normal meals. It was awesome and really added to our repertoire :-)

    DS1 and DS2 have turned their noses up at the 2 dinners I've done so far but I live in hope they will try something new. However they loved tonight's dessert.

    I do this all the time with weight watchers cook books, they are simple and usually quick recipes.

    Haven't one a whole book, but I got the same cookbook for Christmas last year and have used it heaps. My favourite so far is the chorizo eggs with chickpeas...don't remember what she calls it but DELICIOUS!
