The only stumbling block is a fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.Julia Child
The weekend is a good time to try something new and follow Julia’s advise and have a what-the-hell attitude.
The first recipe that caught my eye since last Thursday is Lentil Ragu which comes to us courtesy of Nigella Eats Everything.
Here is her own description of this recipe: “Although the thought of eating a plate of lentils alone doesn’t entice I can promise this recipe has dolled them up so much they’re positively sexy. It’s full of rich, salty olives packing a punch of umami. It’s also hearty and filling, perfect for a cold, wet day.”

The second recipe I am definitely going to try this weekend comes from Terri at Comfort du Jour. She has a recipe for the most amazing delicious clam pizza. This combines two of my favorite things.
Here is her own description of the recipe: “Topped with salty, slightly chewy littleneck clams and accented with fresh oregano, garlic and a copious amount of fluffy shredded Pecorino-Romano cheese, the white clam pizza meets every expectation for a casual meal, but with special ingredients and festive occasion flavor.”

Cous Cous Pancakes
And my third suggestion to try this weekend comes from Diane at In Dianes Kitchen. This recipe is a very novel use of cous cous. I think these pancakes would make a good bogo recipe. Make the cous cous on Friday for dinner and use the leftover to make the pancakes on Saturday.
Here in her own words is Diane’s description: “My husband bought couscous at the store and said maybe I could make something with it for my blog. Well little did he know I would surprise him with a recipe he went nuts over. I do not like green pepper and I can’t stand the smell when it cooks so I never make anything with it. My husband told me it tasted similar to a delicious omelette and that he definitely wants it again!”
