random recipes #18 - something a little different...



...as you know June was a bit of a sad month for me and The Viking and whilst I did my fair share of blogging it all felt like a bit of a duty rather than the fun it should have been and i'm sure many of you will agree with me here... sometimes the pressure of being a blogger can weigh heavy on us all...

... to alieveate the pressure this month I thought i'd do something a little different and a little less stressful... something that should be easy for us all to do, a little fun and informative and hopefully bring us up nice and fresh in August for something a bit more challenging... so instead of asking you to cook a random recipe... this month I would like you all to photograph those cookbooks...

... do you ever find yourself talking on the phone, emailing or tweeting with a blogger friend or family member and wishing you could picture where they were in their home... or what their home looks like if they happen to be half way across the world...?  I do... and if it's with someone whose home i've never been to, when I do finally get to visit I always make a point of finding out where they call me or email me from... so I can picture the scene for next time...

... and so you see, every month I ask you all to choose your random recipes from a pile of books that I have no idea about how they look... where they sit in your homes... how many there are...

random recipes #18 - something a little different...


1. take a photo of your book / books / bookshelf / bookshelves / library
2. post the picture and tell us all a little story about your books
3. include the random recipes logo and link back to this blog
5. email me at dom at belleaukitchen dot co dot uk or tweet me @belleaukitchen
4. you have until the end of the month to enter




...as many of you will know I recently had my kitchen made-over... a wall knocked down here... a new oven there... and whilst we kept our old kitchen units and re-invented them for the new kitchen I made sure that I would have a proper place for the growing number of cookbooks I own... before the new shelves I would place my books on a teeny window ledge on some kind of rotation system... with no room for the poor things to breath... and now, even though to be honest I could do with 3 more shelves, they have room to shuffle and show-off a little... although I keep my three most-used within easy reach...


... and there is of course the 'bathroom-collection' of duplicates and smaller or more obscure books, or even those which I find make excellent toilet reading...

...so it really couldn't be simpler and we may all learn a little bit more about our cooking and blogging friends and where they get those wonderful random recipes from... go on... get snapping!
