Foodie New Year’s Resolutions 2013

"resolutions

January 1st is a good time to make new plans, set some goals and look ahead to the rest of the year. Of course, you could make resolutions any day, but it helps a little bit to use a firm date to get started and not procrastinate too much. My own resolutions are often food based, and this year is no exception. I’m keeping the list short, but I wanted to share them here:

  • Work my way through a big pile of old cooking magazines and finally try some of the recipes that I bookmarked years ago but never got around to making. This resolution has the added bonus that it might help me to clean up my office a little bit.
  • Learn more about wine. I already enjoy it and can pick out wines that I like without much difficultly, but I haven’t yet had a chance to put a lot of effort into wine education as I would like. Plus, tasting wines can be a lot of fun.
  • Do a lot more roasting, since one of my favorite holiday gifts was a beautiful new Staub Dutch oven and I want to make the most of it.
  • Make more videos for Baking Bites. I had a blast doing the handful of videos that I did in 2012 and want to make them a more regular feature of the site in 2013.

What are your foodie goals for this year? Baking more bread at home? Eating out at that Michelin-starred restaurant that you’ve been eyeing? Taking a foodie road trip? Leave a comment below and share your plans for the new year!

  1. Make macarons.

  2. I’d love it if you could post about your wine education as I’m trying to do the same!

  3. Joan – Great resolution!

    Jenny – I will definitely try to include more about that as I learn!

  4. I am with you on #1 – I need to start making all the recipes that I saved in magazines.

    I am going to try my hand at Macaroons – I got the new Bouchon Bakery book and it has their recipe in it. I love their vanilla macaroons – can’t wait to make them!

    Happy New Year!

  5. Its a short lits for me aswell:
    - daily breakfast at home
    - one recipe each week from one of my many cook & baking books

    And looking forward to a food related New York & Washington trip end of February

  6. I am learning so much from you…I’m excited to see what you will be doing this year!

  7. I need to work through my fear of pie crusts! A few bad batches and now I get stressed every time I think about making a pie, so I either a) don’t make one or b) buy a crust. I don’t know why I can’t just push through and experiment like I can with every other tricky thing!
