Foodies Read 2015

Right now, anyone who knows me well is probably saying "Foodies!!!???? Has she lost her mind?"

Or words to that effect.

Because if they know me well, they know I have a real aversion to any kind of kitchen work. Putting it mildly, I'm not much of a cook -- actually I'm not anything of a cook. Can't cook, never could. Never really enjoyed trying. But in 2015, I'm determined to change that. Everyone should be able to cook, at least a little -- right? And I'm thinking maybe looking at a few cookbooks might be a good way to help me along. (Recipes -- what a concept!)

In reality, I know I'll probably just end up reading food-themed mystery novels, but that's OK, too. At least I'll have made an effort.

The 2015 Foodies challenge is hosted by Vicki from I'd Rather Be At The Beach, and runs through December 31, 2015. You can read all about it and sign up by visiting THE CHALLENGE BLOG. There are several levels of participation to choose from --
  • Short-Order Cook: 1 to 3 books
  • Pastry Chef: 4 to 8 books
  • Sous-Chef: 9 to 13 books
  • Chef de Cuisine: 14 to 18
  • Cordon-Bleu Chef: More than 19
and I'm thinking I'll go with the first ("Short-Order Cook") level. Three books should be doable. Now if I can just manage to READ about food without actually EATING so much of it, I should be OK. This could be the only reading challenge that's fattening!

During the year, I'll be tracking my progress over on my challenge blog (HERE). So, bon app├ętit, and happy reading!


  1. I can cook but avoid it when I can. Good luck!

  2. Love that you decided to join!

    I used to love to cook and bake. But I don't like to anymore than I have to, which sadly is most every day.

  3. I wouldn't mind cooking if the people I cook for liked what I cook!

  4. Food-themed mystery novels can be inspiring, too -- they even have recipes! If you do end up cooking, be sure to check out the Weekend Cooking link-up at Beth Fish Reads:
    Lots of inspiration there, too!

Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
