I am a hoarder

Print Friendly and PDF ...of recipes. I can't get enough of them. I collect them & hang on to them in piles that grow out of control. I clip them from magazines, I print them from various websites, I am always searching for new ones. Yet, I haven't even tried a third of the ones I have. Why do I do this? Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me? Oh, and did I mention that my favorite channel is the Food Network? Yeah, I am a little obsessed. Yesterday, I got out the big folder holding my pile & I sorted, clipped & organized (while watching Chopped Champions of course). I got rid of a bunch that are just not realistic & I will most likely NEVER make. I whittled the pile down significantly. But, I still have work to do- in the kitchen now.

So, I am challenging myself over the next few months. Now that I am over the pregnancy/newborn baby phase, I actually feel like being in the kitchen again. I am challenging myself to try at least one new recipe a week & clean out my piles of hoarded recipes. It's time. If I don't start soon, I will never get through the pile! I am going to document it here for you. I will let you know how things go with my recipes that I try. I'll let you know whether the recipe needs to be trashed, modified, or if it's absolutely amazing. You'll hear about those amazing ones for sure.

Who wants to join me?

sounds like a great idea! I do the same and cookbooks! Maybe your blog will help me get started!

I can totally relate! My recipes binder is like 2 inches thick and still has loose papers coming out every which way. I am a recipe addict. Food Network is also my favorite channel!

I can really relate. I love looking at recipes and cookbooks and love taking part in all sorts of recipe swaps on blogs each week. I always find lots of stuff I want to try but then so many times I don't follow through. I set a goal at the beginning of the year to try at least one new recipe a week. I did well for a while but have recently slacked off a little. I need to get back to it so I accept your challenge :)
Can't wait to see what we both come up with...
