As in many things in life, taking the first step to start the challenge was the hardest part. I felt like making a decision to choose a cookbook, open it, and decide on a recipe to try was a chore. Part of it is because I’m driven by visuals. I fully recognize that most of the cookbooks that I don’t frequently use have more text than pictures, and it doesn’t help that I subscribe to a gazillion food blogs that have mouthwatering pictures. Or maybe I’m just indecisive and lazy. No matter! It was hard and grueling but I prevailed!
