A few years ago, I found myself in a bit of a culinary rut — whenever I would cook for myself, it was usually the same 2-3 meals.

I needed to expand my horizons a bit!

So, I gave myself a challenge of trying 20 new recipes over the course of the year. (For many people, that might be a small number. But for me, it seemed a fitting target.)

If I remember right, by the end of the year I had done about 15 new recipes. Short of my target of 20, but it was a step in the right direction! 😅

I had stored all my recipes in simple .txt or markdown files on my computer, as I was also learning git and refining my neovim skills at the same time. This made for a great setup on my computer, but not a great experience if I wanted to use those recipes on my phone.

Since then, I’ve found myself revisiting those recipes a few times!

Each time, the fact that my recipes where primarily on my laptop or on GitHub ended up adding a frustrating layer of inconvenience to the process. If I was at the store looking for ingredients, I needed to go through a long process of logging into GitHub on my phone, finding my notes repository, finding my recipes within that, and then dealing with the not-great visual experience on my phone.

I wanted something better!

Well… My website already displays posts and articles really nicely on mobile…

So, yesterday I put all those recipes I had in those notes on my website!

You can find them here.

I haven’t looked through them super closely. Some of them came from friends’/family’s recipe cards. Some from websites. Some from other sources.

Currently, this is just a copy-paste of my notes that I’d taken a few years ago, so it’s quite likely there’s some errors or other problems in there. It’s also possible (though, I’ll try to ensure that’s not the case) that these pages contain copyrighted works, as I wasn’t thinking about publishing when I originally took these notes.

I’ll try to go through in the coming days and make sure any and all applicable attribution, etc. is added, but it’s possible that something slips through the cracks.

If you see something that needs to be changed, do let me know!

I’ve also added a few stock photos from Unsplash and Pexels to a few of the recipes. Not photos I took myself, but just some nice visuals for the recipe to make the recipe pages more shareable.

If you try a recipe and like it (or hate it, or think I should put another recipe up), let me know!
