This is a fun way to try new healthy recipes and to get ideas by seeing what everyone else tried. You are all welcome to participate (or lurk!). We used to do this every couple weeks, but I've decided to try a monthly format.
Step 1 - Pick and post a recipe!
This can be a recipe from an online source, a cook book, or a magazine. Post the link here or if you are reproducing it from a paper source, do that here. The general idea is to try something new. This round can be any recipe you like. In other rounds we may do categories (beef, soup, dessert, etc.) Here are some great websites to browse...www.sparkrecipes.com ww-recipes.net/ www.3fatchicks.com/diet-recipes/ www.skinnytaste.com/ www.cookinglight.com/
Step 2 - Make recipe and EAT!!
My favorite step by far! This step will also include some prep work for your review. Ask your family (if applicable) what they thought of the recipe. Note any changes that you made or would make if you were to prepare the recipe again. Maybe even snap a pic of your delicious dish.
Step 3 - Review!
On your sparkpeople blog, review your recipe. Include a link to your recipe for folks who aren't playing the game. Post the picture if you took one. Describe any changes you made or would make if you made it again. Was it a hit with the kids? Would the leftovers make a great lunch? Maybe it was a flop and you ended up throwing it all out. You get the gist. Come back to this thread and post a link to your blog so we all can "Ooooh and Aaaah" over your recipe! If the website that you got the recipe from has reviews, comment there so that even more folks can benefit from your awesomeness.
Step 4 - Read and comment on others' blogs. A big part of this challenge is getting ideas from each other. "My family would devour that!" or "I've always been curious about quinoa, and that recipe looks amazing!" You never know, you might stumble across your new favorite recipe!
The idea is to post a recipe, make, and review in November. Then I will start a new thread for December and we will start all over! You may have so much fun that you do several recipes in November. Have at it!!
Let's have fun trying new recipes! If you have any questions, be sure to ask! You can ask here or sparkmail me.
I'll make it to the moon, if I have to crawl.
