I've set a deadline of December 23, 2011. By December 23rd, I want to have perfected... no, mastered thirty recipes. I want to have a selection of desserts, veggie dishes, appetizers and entrées to serve at a dinner party. I want to have the perfect combinations of sweet and salty, light dishes and heavier ones. So I've decided to try a new recipe every week day. I'll take weekends off (because I'll be doing a lot more 5km and 10km races this year and they are usually Friday mornings!!). My first recipe attempt is the Oreo Cookie Cheesecake Cupcakes. They are currently cooling in the fridge - the taste test will be tonight. So I'm going to try to upload a lot of the recipes on here, along with some oh so artistic photos of my creations!!! ... get excited!!!
