So far so good. I have survived two months of my cooking challenge. Apart from the new recipes and the interesting meals there have been some unexpected elements to this challenge.
I was not expecting the sense of satisfaction. Not just at actually accomplishing a challenge I had set for myself, but also in rediscovering the delight of cooking from scratch, of filling the flat with the smell of freshly made food, of planning meals and enjoying the results.
I was also not expecting that the cooking entries would start to take over the blog. Not only have these entries received more readers and comments, but I find myself wanting to write more than just a monthly update. So I have decided to move the detailed blogging about my cooking challenge to another blog, called Crystal Cooks
I will still post a brief overview of the challenge at the end of the month, but will use Crystal Cooks to reflect on insights and experiences as I spend more time in the kitchen, armed with a recipe book.
