So I started a new project. We'll see how it goes, but the idea is that once a week, for however long it takes, I cook a new recipe out of a cookbook. I keep going until I have made something from every single cookbook, or tried a new recipe from some old standbys. We have so many cookbooks that I've never even cracked that this seemed like a good way to at least decide which cookbooks are good and which ones might get passed onward.
Week One: The Working Wives' Cookbook.
This vintage cookbook was a gift from my good friend Amy, and since I am now a working wife (although it does specify "salaried or otherwise"), I thought I would try to make something from this cookbook, which is filled with recipes that you can make ahead and then reheat the next night. I picked Honeyed Carrots, since we had carrots and we needed to use them.
These were pretty good, and a way of eating carrots that has probably gone out of style. The recipe was quite labor-intensive for something I was supposed to do at 8pm the night before, so I probably won't make them again. I am encouraged to try to do more things with carrots though.
