31 Days of Nancy Drew Wrap Up & Feb Nancy Drew Cookbook Challenge

31 Days of Nancy Drew Wrap Up & Feb. Nancy Drew Cookbook Challenge

A few final thoughts on my 31 days of Nancy Drew postings I made all through January here at this Nancy Drew Blog and at Facebook - whew! Hope you all enjoyed it. Learned something new. Were inspired to collect and motivated to try something new in the Nancy Drew universe! If so, it was time well spent.

I mentioned in an early posting at our Nancy Drew Book Fans Facebook Group, that we should do a Nancy Drew Cookbook Challenge in February! So, I thought we could do that and am posting the info for that below. If anyone is interested in participating, dig out your Nancy Drew Cookbooks and start cooking for good clues. Join our Facebook Group or use Twitter or Instagram to post a review and a picture of the presentation of what you cooked. Use #nancydrewcookbook and copy us at Twitter using @nancydrewfans or Instagram using @nancydrewsleuths - and scroll down for more details.....

As noted before if you ever want to reference these 31 postings I made and all the collecting info, you can use the search box or bookmark this link to all the blogs. You can find most of this information in the various pages at my Nancy Drew website or at my Nancy Drew Pinterest in various board. Perhaps at some point I'll make a PDF printable of the info in the size of The Sleuth.


Let's get to the bottom of the mystery of whether or not the Nancy Drew Cookbook recipes are good recipes! Your mission if you choose to accept it, is to select at least one recipe from the cookbook - feel free to make more than one however, and then share your findings - a review. Take pictures!

Choose at least one recipe - you can make more if you're game - and make it. Write up a review and take a picture and post that here in a cookbook thread on Feb. 20th or soon thereafter. What I'll do is on Feb. 20th, I'll pin a Cookbook Challenge thread which will remain near the top of the page with other pinned posts - use the comments of this posting to post a review and photos and we can keep all the cookbook reviews/pics to one thread rather than spread out overtaking the page. If anyone forgets to do this, I'll move your comment/photos to this thread and delete any individual postings.

For your review, try to keep it fairly simple with about a paragraph or two with the pertinent details, no need to re-type the recipe - let us know:

1. Name of recipe and page number
2. Was it easy to make?
3. Give it a 1-5 rating (1 terrible, 5 excellent)
4. How was the taste?
5. Would you make it again?
6. Did your recipe have any extra tips from Nancy and if so, what did you think of those?
7. Would you change anything about the recipe to make it better or leave it as is?

Don't have a cookbook but want to participate? Here's a link to all of them for sale at eBay.

So grab your rolling pins and Silpat baking sheets and get to cooking!
