What are your foodie resolutions for 2010? Cook dinner at home more? Bake the perfect batch of brownies? Eat out at that one restaurant you’ve always dreamed of visiting? Open your own restaurant?
It’s a lot easier to make New Year’s resolutions than it is to keep them. I’ve heard statistics that say anywhere from 50 to 92% of all resolutions are not kept. They say that the trick to keeping a resolution is to break them down into smaller, more manageable goals. So, if you want to cook at home more, you might star out by cooking a big dinner once a week so that there will be plenty of leftovers for another dinner and a lunch or two. Gradually work up to more mights, or encourage yourself further by saying you’ll try a new dish or two fro a favorite cookbook.
Last year, one of my goals was to finish a cookbook, which I did! This year, I’m just not quite sure what my big resolution is going to be, but traveling more, taking an international cooking class and baking more bread (something I’ve put on the back burner a bit) are definite goals of mine. I’d also like to hold a few more contests on Baking Bites with giveaways for all of you readers. Beyond that, I’ll have to make them up as I go through 2010!
