Fruity Friday

Challenge 46 of my Day Zero Project is to cook my way through a cookbook. It was a hard choice because I have quite a few cookery books, but given that I'm supposed to be losing weight (not doing very well at the moment....more about that in another post) I thought the best choice would be a book based on fruit. As you can see, the one I picked is a Readers Digest book and it's called, Fresh Fruit & Desserts.
I was very, very tempted to cook my way through, Desserts to Die For but I couldn't bring myself to do it. As the name suggests, all those calories would probably kill me off!

Anyway, back to the healthy recipes. We all eat quite a lot of fruit and vegetables in this house but we tend to stick to the same ones so I thought this book would vary our diet and make things a little more interesting.

I'm going to post a recipe, photos of the finished dish and the reactions from the family every Friday.
I've just been browsing the recipes and there are some that look absolutely delicious and some that I'm a bit nervous about getting the kids to try because I know they're not very adventurous with new food!
It's something they need to get used to though so this challenge should help with that. I'm sure if I get them involved in the preparing and cooking of each recipe, they'll be more inclined to try the finished dish.

The first category in the book is breakfast recipes. Come back on the 27th Jan to find out what the taste testers have to say about a very easy first recipe... strawberry and yogurt smoothie :)
