It looks like those of us who are interested, will be interested to start in January. That will give some time to get the wrinkles ironed out...

This might be a good challenge for after Christmas when things slow down a little. I like cooking challenges. I did the Official Healthy Cooking Challenge team. While some of it I already knew, it was a fun way to motivate myself around cooking.

I agree. It sound like something I would enjoy, but not right now with the holiday season.

I would love to do something with recipes too....especially crock pot cooking which is not my forte. This month is not good for any more challenges for me though....staying to my fitness and eating plans and not gaining is the best that I can do with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Barely have time to check-in most days right now.

I can't even figure out how to use the recipe calculator. If I type in "white beans", it doesn't specify dry or cooked. Same with meat, or grains, or even potato, which are only listed by size not weight. I just use my old trusty cookbooks, which would mean typing them all out.

Hi Amanda! I think this is a great idea. We could use your help in getting things started. Can you think about how you'd like this to work and send me a message with the details? Thanks so much!

Recipes on-line or in folders could be copied and pasted to avoid typing.

I would be very interested to do this after Jan 1st. Right now, I am over my head with just getting things ready for Christmas.

Great idea

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

Nell - hmm, most of my recipes are online so I could just post a link. I guess a ton of typing would kill the fun.

Kitty - this would be a great motivator to start cooking more! I guess I wasn't terribly clear. It doesn't have to be an original recipe (mine wont be). Any recipe will be great!

I don't know. It would involve a lot of typing. Tonight's dinner is cassoulet, WW style, and it's over a page long. Most of my recipes are like that, which is why I love them.

I'm not really a cook but I'm trying to learn and have fun with it. I would be more than happy to try the recipes of others but I might not really have any to really add.

I've been dying to do a recipe game/challenge! I've envisioned a game where participants post a recipe of their choice at the beginning of the week and then make it sometime during the week and review it. We could have different categories of recipes each week.

Anyone interested?
