Cook Challange: Rediscover the Lost Art of Cooking.

Yes, I'll admit (without shame, mind you) I am an Oprah fan. I love her efforts to do good. One good effort she put forth this week was on childhood obesity and it featured cook Jamie Oliver and his new food revolution to help children eat healthier. I was inspired to say the least.

On that note . . .

Here's the new Cook Challenge.

Start your own food revolution in your own home, all you need to do is cook something from scratch. With fresh and raw ingredients - no packets, no cheating!

- If you know how to cook, pass on your skills and keep them alive for future generations. If your kids and families don't learn, their only option will be a diet of processed and fast food.

- If you don't know how to cook from scratch, start now, it could change your life and improve your health prospects. Find recipes that are quick, easy and economical. But you must find a recipe that is from scratch. (Start Googling!)

I challenge you to do it once a week for the next 3 weeks. Post about your adventure, what you made, what you learned. Let's rediscover the lost art of cooking, if not for us, for our children.
Starting now. Good luck!
P.S. Cooks - don't forget to label your challenge post like so: Cook Challenge: Rediscovering Cooking.

We must have similar minds. I actually started this challenge for myself last week, but keep forgetting to take pictures. I'll be better...

I'm all over this one, cooking from scratch is the kind of cooking I prefer otherwise I just want to eat at a fancy schmancy restaurant or at my mom's house. I can't wait to get started!
