I am a slightly abashed geek, but realizing that I enjoy that side of me more as I get older. I am married and I have three kids. I enjoy cooking, but I hate doing the dishes.

Two years ago I received the Damn Good Food cookbook for Christmas and was very excited about it. After a year of making only one recipe from the book I got the idea to cook all 157 recipes. Not Original. Not as daunting as Mastering the Art of French Cooking. But is was very tasty and fun.

Now I am trying to figure out a way to go back to living without a year long blog goal. I decided to go with monthly goals and started by losing some of the extra butter and cream I packed on last year.

If you want to know anything else I read the comments pretty religiously or you can email me: damngoodfood at LIVE dot com.

    I like your nod to Julie & Julia. I hope you get a film deal from it!

    Good luck with the challenge.

    Great challenge! The other one was crazy, this one sounds doable, but still big. Congrats on being Freshly Pressed. Very cool. I like your “About” blurb too.

    Very cool challenge you’ve got going! I did a similar one with the Barefoot Contessa’s Back to Basics cookbook and am now tackling the rest of the books because I enjoyed the challenge so much. The best part was making and eating something completely new all the time – and discovering ingredients and dishes we wouldn’t normally try. Good luck on your journey and Bon Appetit!! :)

    That’s what they made dishwashers for! Good luck with the cooking but it sounds like you’re going to enjoy the challenge.
