We are about to start a themed cookbook challenge. If you are new to the discussion forums, there is no need to sign-up, and you can participate as much or as little as you want, there aren't really any "rules." A themed cookbook challenge saves you $ and the agonizing time to wait for an inter-library book loan to arrive! You can use recipes from ANY vegan/vegan-friendly cookbook, magazine, blog as long as it fits in with the theme. Just be sure to share the source with us (and possibly the page number since not all cookbooks have a well-organized table of contents or index).

Thanks to all who voted! Below are the 6 chosen themes determined by popular vote and the dates for each two-week challenge period.

Sunday Nov 10 - Saturday Nov 23: Quick & easy for weeknight cooking
Sunday Nov 24 - Saturday Dec 7: Barely used cookbook
Sunday Dec 8 - Saturday Dec 21: World Cuisine
Sunday Dec 22 - Saturday Jan 4: "New" to your bookshelf cookbooks
Sunday Jan 5 - Saturday Jan 18: Healthier Eating
Sunday Jan 19 - Saturday Feb 1: Your first vegan cookbook

*If you personally decide to change up the order of the themed cookbook challenge weeks, please wait until the appropriate discussion thread is posted to share your food photos + comments**

Food photos: Photos of your food is always nice but not necessarily. If you are new to forums, the PPK does not do photo hosting, i.e. you cannot just "attach" or upload your photo with your comment post. You will need upload your photos elsewhere (i.e. flickr, photobucket, your blog) and copy the photo's image link (easily done by right clicking your mouse on the picture and choosing "copy image URL." Then come back here and click the "img" button and paste the image URL between the codes. For this to work properly, make sure there are no funny letters or numbers AFTER the *.jpg extension. If you need more instruction than that please read this helpful post by brian viewtopic.php?f=16&t=886

Thanks for posting! I was so excited that I started planning this morning for the Quick and Easy so it's great that it is the first up!

Do we post the recipe itself or just the source?

I have a silly question : What exactly do we do for the challenge? Cook all week from the theme? A couple of meals? It's been so long since I did a challenge I don't even remember anymore.

awesome, i'm going to try to use IDI and maybe QFV.

I will create a brand new discussion thread for weeks 1 & 2 of our challenge, and for all the other 2-week challenges too.

Looking forward to the threads starting! I went and got some ingredients today for starting off on Sunday. Payday isn't until Thursday and I've two nights out in a row next weekend so the quick and easy challenge timing is perfect because I am rubbish on little sleepy.

So tempted to buy Isa Does it as a Christmas present for myself. I know I don't need a new cookbook but it would really make Christmas even just a bit special and give me something to look forward. If I decide to get it I'm going to order it when I get paid next week. I'm going to even get it wrapped so that I have something to unwrap for Christmas.

Oh I totally won't wait until the actual day!! I will probably open it a week or two beforehand so I can plan my Christmas dinner from it! But I will wait to use it until Christmas Eve.

I'm thinking of using Vegan Unplugged as one of my cookbooks since I'll be away one of the two weeks and will have limited supplies for cooking with.

I'm interested in doing this again but I feel I'll fail at topics. Anyone want to coordinate this with me?
