The Year of the Recipe

Over the years, I have amassed quite the list of recipes from our travels to cook at home.  Some are recipes that I have been inspired to recreate and some are recipes that I have received.  But sadly, most have gone unmade.  Yep, even though I cook at home most nights of the week, I have seriously neglected making these recipes that I have been so excited about during (and even after) our travels.

So I’ve decided that instead of creating a long list of goals for the New Year, I really want to focus on just a few things, and cooking is one of them.  I’m saying adiós to my yearly tradition of making a laughably long list of life goals, and cheers instead to creating an insanely long list of recipes.  I feel a little bit like this is my very own Julie & Julia moment, except I am just having this moment with myself, so it is more like a ‘Katie & Katie’ moment.  (Oh, and unlike Julie, I am not attempting to make 524 new recipes, just 50.)

  1. Seeing as I’m snowed in presently, this looks like a perfect opportunity for me to start something like this myself!
