Whew. That was a lot of cooking. And dishes.

What did you make in January that was memorable? Any cooking challenges you’ve tackled recently?

This month I pushed myself out of my comfort zone by:

canning and making jelly (I canned!)

making stovetop jelly

posting more savory recipes and dinner recipes (despite bad lighting, no lighting, a hungry and impatient family at times, savory was happened and was documented)

I posted eggs (twice) and had never in 3 years posted any egg recipes

I posted a shrimp recipe and had never in 3 years posted any shellfish recipes

I took food “holidays” like Superbowl, Mardi Gras, Valentine’s, and St. Patrick’s Day to heart and planned recipes in advance and according to the holidays

What’s on your to-make list?

Plenty is on mine. Ever been on Pinterest? Many hours each week are spent looking, surfing, clicking, dreaming, pondering; and I love every second of it.
