The 100 Day Project – make a new recipe every day

I’m taking part in an Instagram challenge called The 100 Day Project.  It’s a celebration of making, and showing up day after day is the goal.

My challenge is to make a new (to me) recipe every day for 100 days.  Today is day 24, and here are some of my new favourites –

the 100 day challenge

Double Chocolate Cloud Cake (made in muffin cases) – A Modern Way to Eat
Roasted peppers – torn out of the Telegraph Magazine
Berry Smoothie – Deliciously Ella
Pizza – Honestly Healthy
Homemade Jaffa Cakes – Love your Lunchbox
Proper chilli – A Modern Way to Eat

I chose this challenge because I’ve been in a cooking rut for a while (years), making the same recipes in rotation.  I think partly because we ‘only’ have an Aga.  I realise that’s a nice problem to have, but it is a different way of cooking and we had a few disasters when we first moved here!  I’ve found a few recipes that work, and stuck to them.

I’m finding the challenge really inspiring.  It does take a bit of planning but it’s interesting the difference that adding a bit of thought and a few herbs or spices can make.

Mr D is always supportive of the things I do, but he’s been especially interested in this challenge.  I asked him if he was enjoying it – “it’s b*****y brilliant” he said!

If you’d like to follow my progress, (and for other photos of life around here),  I’m dottie_doodle on Instagram, or click here .

And do have a look at the other challenges at #the100dayproject.  There is some amazing work out there – I’ll do a round up of some of my favourites next week.

  1. I love this idea! It’s definitely a challenge; 100 days is long enough to ensure there will be days you don’t feel like doing a thing LOL – I’m super impressed at your determination! Hope you let us know what your favourites are – I get in a cooking rut too, sometimes 🙂

    • You’ll see from my post on IG yesterday that I didn’t feel like cooking – and what I did about it! I certainly will let you know my favourites – check in at 50 days, maybe.

  2. It sounds like a really interesting project! I enjoy trying out new recipes, but I think I’d feel overwhelmed trying to do that many in a row. (Too bad, because that would be a great way to actually do something about all those things I have saved on Pinterest.) I just followed you on IG, so I’ll be looking forward to seeing what else you come up with!
