Over the last few years, my mother-in-law has been collecting Southern Living Annual Recipe books for us. We now have eighteen of these volumes ranging from the year 1980 to the year 2000. These books are a collection of recipes from the Southern Living magazines and arranged by month. I have pulled out quite a few recipes to try, but never can remember which ones worked well for us and which ones didn't. Hopefully by documenting our efforts and the recipes here, I will be better able to keep up with what worked and what may need tweaking for our tastes.

To help me reach my goal, I'd like to cook at least
- Two recipes from the Southern Living Annual Recipes per month (preferably vegetable based)
- attempt one biscuit recipe a month (the Mister really likes biscuits)
- and bake and decorate three cakes for the year
