Look what's coming!

The only way I'll hang onto 1000 Classic Recipes for Every Cook is if I find several favorite recipes in this book. It's huge and poorly indexed (index of recipe titles only), which makes it really hard to find recipes by ingredient.

For a long time I've thought of dumping this book, but the sheer quantity of recipes kept it on my shelf. However, I realize now that The Original New York Times Cook Book probably has more recipes and is much better organized. The 1000 recipes book is so huge because of all the pictures.

Even so, I'd like to cook ten last recipes as a farewell to this book. Or perhaps I'll discover lots of new favorites and it will earn its space on the shelf. Here are the first five recipes that I'll try:
* Garbanzo bean & tomato soup
* Spanish tortilla
* Stir-fried ginger chicken
* Sage chicken & rice
* Spaghetti bolognese

BTW, the cinnamon raisin bread from More Bread Machine Magic turned out great!

Very nice, I'm looking forward to the further adventures of :D

Do you ever make your own recipes, or get the urge to go on those cooking contests?

I often make my own recipes. That's part of why I ended up on this journey... .For a long time I had rarely used my cookbooks, and my husband was asking why I needed all these cookbooks.

I've occasionally entered a recipe contest, but haven't won. But I rarely see mention of these contests, so it's pretty rare than I enter. I wouldn't want to enter a live cooking contest, because I'm really slow with prep work, such as chopping.

I enjoy the tv bakeoffs and such, but I think it must be a disaster to actually try them *g*.
