This week we have a theme! Learn to cook something new.

But before we get to that, as of this morning still no winners on the Big Flavor contest. All the right answers are in there, but no one has hit the winning combination yet....

If you are afraid to prepare whole fish, perhaps the secret is to start small. Like anchovies. Check out Delicious Days and you'll see what I mean.

I think one of the easiest meals is steamed mussels. Head over to Cookbook 411 for a lovely vacation to Prince Edward Island, some scrumptious potatoes and no-muscles needed mussel instructions.

For dessert, learn all the inside and outside secrets to making great pie from a genuine pastry chef at Eggbeater. I'm just about convinced to give it a try.

Finally once you've learned to cook something new, document it. For aspiring food photographers, don't miss the food photography tips over at 101 Cookbooks, one of the best looking blogs around.
