Foodie New Year’s Resolutions 2010

New Year’s Resolutions?

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!

    My resolution is to cut out sugar (more of it anyway) and to makes meals and snacks with more protein and whole grains. It’s going to be tough! But I’m committed.

    Happy New Year! I really don’t like the word resolution. I think it indicates failure if you don’t succeed or accomplish but goal is more open to success to strive to achieve it–even if not attained. Can’t wait to see what 2010 brings to Baking Bites. It has definitely become my favorite baking site and I visit it many times a day to see what’s happening.

    I think your resolution to take an international cooking class is a good one. I’m still trying to think of one, but for now I’m telling everyone it’s “bake more”.

    Happy New Year! My new years resolutions are to lose weight (boring!!), be more sociable, and to take a photo every day for the 365 project. I’ve managed 5 so far!
