What I Read In 2018

This past year I had the idea of opening a second Goodreads to track all the cookbooks I read since they always put mover on my reading challenge.  Instead I just adjusted the number of books I wanted to read.  I guess I need to adjust it again for next year.  I still have a few books to add.  So my ending number of books read for 2018 will be more around 85.

I learned so much from these books.  I read lots of cook books and may up my number for next year to include all the ones I have at home that I continually use in meal planning.  I continue to blossom into the home cook I want to be and will one day be the gluten-free baker I dream of being.  Searing meat and main dishes still tend to be the hardest to reproduce for me when trying a new recipe.  My list of 100 things is always full of cooking techniques and dishes I want make, for 2018 I made liver pate but did not perfect a poached egg (thing has lingered on my list for a few years!)

I learn more about organizing, productivity, and coaching.  I love helping people with organizing and productivity.  I feel that when being diagnosed with food allergies and Celiac (or any other diseases that the only treatment is diet change) the change in productivity is the hardest part.  Change is hard.  Transitioning to a whole new way of eating/living is very tough.  Having someone to help you through the transition, like an AllerCoach (TM) can ease some of the anxiety.

Happy Reading! – Susan B.
