2 Another Milestone Reached: A Blog Contest to Celebrate 150 Recipes in 3 Years!

Pin It

It's official, this blog has now reached 150 recipes. That means there's only 100 recipes to go in order to complete the recipe portion of my cookbook!

Of course, the cookbook will not just be a compilation of recipes already published on this blog. There will be lots of new recipes not found on this blog, plus a few surprises here and there. :)

The original goal was to have completed 250 recipes, but when I reach 250, I might keep going if I feel there's still more I need to include to "flesh out" the cookbook. I'm not sure at this point. Ask me again when I reach #250. ;)

Once I finish the recipe writing phase, of course there's still a lot of work to be done. Then begins the process of organizing, editing, & possibly rewriting material, creating chapters & an index, as well as writing additional material. I'm going to be adding special sections on nutrition & wellness, including a sports nutrition subcategory for endurance athletes. The cookbook will feature a lot of recipes centering around "superfoods," & will also contain various tips & anecdotes.

A lot of time & effort (as well as love & care) has gone (& still goes!) into the recipe-writing process & the testing phases as well! I can't tell you how great it feels to have finally reached Recipe #150, as the "light at the end of the tunnel" has now come into view. :)

So, to celebrate the arrival of this milestone, I'm holding another blog contest. And if you haven't guessed, I'll probably be holding another one when I reach #200 and yet another for #250, which'll definitely be an extra special contest.

So, here's how to enter the blog contest. It's really easy.
