Wisdom comes with age.  No.  Wisdom comes with experience.

I was naive when I did the first Good Housekeeping’s Cookery Compendium Challenge. I thought it would be a breeze.  This time, I approached it with caution.

A lot of recipes were just bland…


Tomato Soup


Meat & Potato Loaf

Some were surprisingly easy…


Polish Faworki

Some got a bit sexy…


Fish Envelopes 

Some had unhelpful names…


Brown Stew

Some, I tried to fail on…


Six Cup Pudding and Mock Cream

And one was stand out amazing…


Braised Celery Hearts

The Introduction describes the GHCC as “one handsome volume”.  It is.  It’s huge, comprehensive and full of savvy kitchen management tips. It’s obvious I’m not it’s target audience but it’s a good read. We had a good run with these recipes; have I been lulled into a false sense of security?
