To be honest, I’ve never been one to create New Year’s Resolutions. But the past two years have sent me a little off track with my goals. Some loved ones needed help, and family just had to come first. The cost wasn’t just pushing back book deadlines, it also sapped some of my kitchen mojo. While I’ve loved every recipe that I’ve created, each one has been taking a lot of extra mental oomph to accomplish, and I’ve found myself with an overly repetitive menu most days of the week. I want to not only regain my passion for recipes, but take my cooking up a notch to give you many more delicious dairy-free options and ideas.
And for this spreadsheet queen, nothing works better than repetition and tracking, so I’m setting a big goal and I know I will accomplish it! I’m going to … Trial One New Recipe for Every Day of the Year.
It might be a favorite blogger recipe I’ve been dying to whip up, a recipe I’ve adapted to be dairy-free, or something brand new that I’ve been dreaming of! Some will be hits, some will be misses, but if all goes well, I’ll also emerge with 365 Dairy-Free Recipes that are winners for retesting. I guess you could call that my second big goal!
Each week, I’ll post one of my successful recipes for you along with updates on what I’ve trialed – I hope that the notes will inspire your own cooking, and perhaps you may even have some tips for the ones that didn’t work out. My first new recipe will be up on January 7th, and will continue weekly thereafter for all of 2016. Oh, and books? August 2016 is the “at last” release date for more dairy-free books!
I’ve got many recipes on my bucket list, but please comment with any recipes you would like me to trial dairy-free, and if you’re a recipe blogger, feel free to share a link to a recipe of yours that you think I should trial dairy-free!
You can also follow me on social media where I’ll share my trials of the 365 dairy-free recipes as I go with the hashtag #365dairyfree on Twitter and Instagram, plus my weekly recipe posts on Facebook and Pinterest.
