Well, this past month has been an adventure. I’m kind of ready to stop thinking so hard about my menus and just cook more spontaneously again, as I usually do (and not have to write a blog post about every meal I make… it’s fun, but time-consuming.)
Things I’ve learned from Betty Crocker:
- She uses a LOT of saturated fats. I reduced the fat by half pretty consistently and still felt that it was a lot. I think that oil could be used to good effect instead in most of the recipes.
- There’s actually a fair amount of stuff in the cookbook that is adaptable and good. There’s also a lot I’d never bother with. But this project has inspired me to expand my horizons. I’d like to try veganising more of the recipes in days to come.
I had a lot of fun all the same, and I’m already tossing ideas around in my brain trying to decide what I should choose as a theme next year. 🙂
