We Should Cocoa Meets Random Recipes


We Should Cocoa meets Random Recipes. Those are two different monthly cooking challenges. And they are colliding for the month of February. Since I never pass up the chance to challenge myself in the kitchen, I'm in! 

Click to read the full details: here and here. If you want to join the fun, you have till February 26th to pick and cook your random chocolate recipe.


Step One: collect the cookbooks. I have an embarrassingly large number of cookbooks whose covers have never been cracked. In this case, I only put chocolate and cake cookbooks in the running.


Step Two: pick the recipe. The Kitchen Elves - and my Love - helped. They love games...and especially delight in anything that unnerves me. 'Let's find something Mommy would never usually make!'

First, they each picked a cookbook from the stack and randomly opened to a page.

 
 Then, I let them hash it out. They voted. They cajoled. They swayed the others to their pick. I think, in the end, Riley's choice won out.


Step Three: cook the recipe. Okay, that won't be happening today. But, soon. The boys - all three of them - are more than a little bit excited. Stay tuned.


The hosts for this fun event are The Chocolate Log Blog and Belleau Kitchen, two completely new-to-me blogs. What fun!
