Alternate titles for this post: Melanie and Lindsay? No, too creepy sounding and we don’t have the matching M-names (or L-names).
That’s a reference to Julie and Julia by the way!
I realized that my absolute favorite meals lately have all come from the Pinch of Yum blog. Matt and I have been making her pomodoro sauce on repeat, and this Sunday I made her brown butter scallops with risotto and sauteed spinach. Oh my gosh! That was one of the best meals I’ve had in a while and I was shocked by how quickly it came together. I found it particularly fun to cook too because it required multi-tasking, which made me feel like a pro.
Anyway, I’ve made a bunch of PoY recipes at this point, and without fail they have all been wild successes. So I’ve decided to pull a Julie and Julia and cook 100 recipes from Pinch of Yum over the next who-knows-how-many weeks. This isn’t about a deadline, it’s about trying all of the yummy recipes Lindsay has to offer! Thus adding to the collection of incredible meals I currently have on rotation.
So really the title should be ‘100 Recipes from Pinch of Yum’, but somehow that doesn’t have the right ring to it. ‘100 Days’ sounds like a goal. ‘100 Recipes’ sounds like a catalog. I want this to be a fun and delicious goal to work towards!
I’m excited. Hope you are too, lest anyone follow along!
I’ll start by listing the incredible meals I’ve already tried. Yep, they count towards the 100. I’ll probably make them again between now and finish time anyway so it’s not cheating! Here we go:
So there you have it! 8 recipes down, 92 to go. I’m sure I’m forgetting one or two that I’ve made but I’ll add them if and when I remember them. Can’t wait to make more delicious meals! Here is my current lust list to get started with:
