Isn't it amazing htc...how sometimes after cooking from a book...you realize you already have something similar that you like better? I think this would be fun though....I always wanted to do something like this...just never did. Good luck! Hope you find some winners!

You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you can't close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.

I admire you. Every year I swear I'm going to make a monthly dish from my cookbook collection. Every year I don't do it. To actually work through one cookbook, recipe for recipe, is un-imaginable. I tend to pull out 2-5 recipes for a dish I want to try (among my multitude of cookbooks, Gourmet and Saveur magazines), then make my own. But I'm getting into a rut; partially because I don't have a lot of freinds with adventurous tastes and hearty appetites here.

I'm lucky that I have a friend who is always willing to try my cooking. I have already given her some of my dishes and the stuff that doesn't turn out very good, like the apple sauce, I can find a way to use it.

I find that I have to force myself not to modify the recipe too much. A lot of my cooking is on the fly and so as I'm doing this little experiment I deviate a little, but not too much. I just hope I don't get too tired of doing this. I've been going to a lot of potlucks lately, so that helps me try new recipes.
