Have you made a new recipe lately?

If so was it a hit and would you make it again?

Do you have a stack of recipes waiting to be tried and just haven't had the time?

Do you get most of your recipes from cookbooks, online, from magazines/newspapers?

Do you have a new recipe to share?

Yes, I have tried 6 new recipes this month and I have 4 more new recipes yet to try.

The recipes I tried were good, but not outstanding enough to make again.

Yes, I have a stack, lol! I try to make at least one thing new each week, sometimes more on weekends when I will be home.

I get my recipes from cookbooks, online, and magazines. I keep a sheet of paper in front of most cookbooks noted with recipes I want to try. I have several bookmarked on my computer or on Pinterest. I tear out magazine recipes and keep them in a binder.

If one of my next new recipes come out well, I will definitely share! This weekend I will be trying Asian BBQ spare ribs; Slim Potato Casserole; Zucchini Potato Soup; and a Lemon-Parmesan Vinaigrette over greens.

Have you made a new recipe lately? I can't remember the last time I tried a new one. I don't cook or bake a lot in the summer, but this fall I am planning on it!

If so was it a hit and would you make it again?

Do you have a stack of recipes waiting to be tried and just haven't had the time? A BIG stack! From here and pinterest. Those recipes look so good, but who ca try them all?

Do you get most of your recipes from cookbooks, online, from magazines/newspapers? Yes

Do you have a new recipe to share? Unfortunately no, but I'm working on it!

No. no new recipes.  Oh I take that back.  I made a dish the other day that I had not made before.

If so was it a hit and would you make it again?

Yes, I really liked it although I did not have all the ingredients for it.  I will make it again.

Do you have a stack of recipes waiting to be tried and just haven't had the time?

Honey....I have so many I want to may I can't live long enough to make them all. LOL

Do you get most of your recipes from cookbooks, online, from magazines/newspapers?

Cook books, cooking magazines mostly.  A few online.

Do you have a new recipe to share?

I reckon I do, but am too lazy to type it up right now.  I always have new recipes to share.  hehehehe

Yes I made a recipe for grape salad, which a lot of you have probably made, but it was new to me and yes it was a big success, not a grape left, I will make it again. I do not have a stack of rcipes waiting to be tried, I have stacks. Most of my recipes come from online sourses.

Wow you are well organized! I keep the recipes I want to try on the computer, on the desk when I print them or in a pile on the counter. LOL not a good system...Those Asian spare ribs sound good, can't wait to hear how they are!

Too funny Linda! Like you I have tons and don't think I'll try even half of the recipes. Ds has been on a cheesecake kick lately so he's tried 3 or 4 new cheesecake recipes. I don't like cheesecake but so far everyone that's tried them love them.

Sounds like we all have "stacks" of recipes we want to try but never get around to it. Ds made a great pasta dish the other night for dinner but no recipe, he just winged it. Came out very good!

Have you made a new recipe lately?

Last weekend I made a chocolate and mint self-saucing pudding!

If so was it a hit and would you make it again?

It was a hit and I will definitely make it again but not too often.   It wasn't exactly a healthy option :smileysurprised:  but life is short and this pudding with vanilla icecream .. delicious.   Sad thing is I have now discovered Nestle Peppermint Crisp bars .. WICKED!

Do you have a stack of recipes waiting to be tried and just haven't had the time?

Not really.   I see so many in magazines and online and think YUMMY but don't save them.   Silly really but reckon I would have a pile as high as the ceiling if I did.

Do you get most of your recipes from cookbooks, online, from magazines/newspapers?

From food magazines sold at the supermarket most of the time but online for sure!   Hey, isn't that we are doing *here*.   I must have a hundred cookbooks too.   I find it impossible to throw them away.

Do you have a new recipe to share?

I can share the pudding recipe.   You can see it HERE

Have a happy rest of weekend!
