Great idea. Looks like it hasn't seen any activity in a while. But I think I'll give it a shot anyway.

Wow, this is a great idea! :) I have a ton of recipe books that are dying to be shown into the kitchen (and a new apartment to try them out in!).

The zuchinni is in so all the new recipes I'm trying have something to do with this abundant, versatile vegetable.

I just bought a Vitamix, so have been trying the recipes in their cookbook. I loved the Carrot Ginger Tofu Soup! I have made some of the fruit/green smoothies, they are excellent too. The recipes are soooo quick... I will try many more and let you know.

I LOVE the sherried sardine toast. Thank you!
I made Tuscan Braised Cod. Will post recipe on our recipe site. I can't attribute the recipe since it's an old newspaper clipping. Delicious.

I made Alton Brown's Sherried Sardine Toast from Good Eats.

It was wonderful! Can't recommend it higher. Posted the recipe link in our recipe section, along with a recipe of my own.

Trying to up potassium intake so found an Epicurious recipe for Halibut with Lima Beans or you can use Edamame. Yum! You can find it on the Epicurious website.

I tried 3 recipes in the Veganomicon Cookbook. The one I loved was French Lentil Soup with Tarragon & Thyme. It is excellent! Tastes very rich, I will definitely make it again and again. MELISSATSANG posted it on spark at:

Szechwan-Style Red Snapper Fillets from "Fish on the Grill" By Barbara Grunes and Phyllis Magida (out of print, but available used on Amazon).

My mom made this last night (although she used walleye because that's what the market had). Not only was it delicious! Not only was the dish itself great, but the sauce would be great as the base of a stir-fry! It's got that sweet, spicy taste so many restaurants make, without the In Your Face tons of garlic (because you can adjust to taste) or overkill sweetness.

This is the second recipe she's made from the book, and it's a winner!

Here's a challenge to get us all to try new things; use all those cookbooks we've been buying; then shelving unused; and give our recommendations for what others should buy or avoid!

Rules of the challenge are simple:

1. Goal is to participate at least once a week, but more or less is good (I know I really won't be playing much until school is out for the summer).

2. Get out one of your cookbooks and try a new recipe.

3. Review it here and, if you're comfortable doing so, post the actual recipe in our recipe area (which is in serious need of some yummy action)!

That's it! I'll even set up a team goal so by playing you can get yourself a few Spark Points!
