I have an internet problem.
I’m pretty much online, in some form, all day long. My day job is all online = 8 hours. Blogging = 1-3 hours. Reading blogs, commenting on blogs, and other time-sucks like my new obsession with pinterest = I don’t want to add up or admit to a number here.
One of the best parts of my day is when I get to read magazines, cookbooks, and blogs, and mark recipes that I want to make.
The only problem? I never go back and actually make them!
I can count on one hand – one finger, actually – how many times I’ve actually made a recipe I’ve seen on someone else’s blog in the past 3 years.
About a year and a half ago, I made Brown Sugar Bacon Waffles from Joy the Baker. They were incredible. And since I’m not the best waffle maker, it was even better that they turned out delicious and didn’t stick to the waffle iron like mine usually do.
With all the recipes I have printed and bookmarked and starred and pinned, you’d think I would have tried more than one by now. I’m usually messing around in the kitchen with my own recipes, but I’d like to really give these recipes a shot and just follow someone else’s directions for once.
I’ve got a new challenge for myself:
At least once a month (and hopefully more), I will try a recipe that I have flagged to make. And I’ll post about it here! I’ve got so many tasty recipes waiting, and I’m excited to get going on this challenge. Making up my own recipes is definitely fun. But I like being able to just follow instructions and learn new tips and tricks from someone else, too.
Anyone else up for the challenge? Or know of an awesome recipe I need to make?
I’ve got a few ready and waiting and can’t wait to get started.
What’s on your to-make list right now?
